David Reitze is the executive director of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory and a professor of physics at Caltech. As the executive director of LIGO since 2011, Reitze led the team that made the first direct detection of gravitational waves—ripples in space and time. On September 14, 2015, the LIGO physically sensed the undulations in spacetime caused by gravitational waves generated by two colliding black holes 1.3 billion light-years away. LIGO's discovery will go down in history as one of humanity's greatest scientific achievements.
