Appropriately for the topic of this symposium, the recent detections of gravitational waves by the LIGO and Virgo detectors connect the sub-nuclear distance distortions measured with interferometers to colliding black holes and neutron stars in distant galaxies and connect the fundamental physics of gravity to the astrophysics and nuclear physics in astronomy. We will review the latest discoveries and describe the amazing technology that made them possible, as well as the exciting prospects for the future.
