Corey Gray, Blackfoot scientist who works at the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) takes us on his journey to being part of the team that measured gravitational waves. And Kai uses magnets to hack gravity.

COYOTE'S CRAZY SMART SCIENCE SHOW (Coyote Science) is a visually stunning, award-winning adventures-in-science series designed for elementary students.

Our ancestors studied the cosmos and had much astronomy knowledge, often told through story. We even build our own forms of observatories. Get a peek into what happens at an Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) with Blackfoot Scientist Corey Gray who studies blackholes and gravitational waves. And he works with his mother, translating science documents into Blackfoot. Speaking of gravitational waves, the Earth is like one big magnet and Kai hacks gravity with some magnets. In our animation story, Kokum shares about how the North Star helped her when she was a young girl. Space is Awesome!
