Overview

The Gravitational Astrophysics Laboratory (Code 663) conducts a broad range of scientific investigations into astrophysical regimes dominated by extreme gravity. The laboratory provides the scientific and technical leadership to develop space-based gravitational wave observatories and includes a mix of theorists and experimentalists. Research encompasses a variety of areas, including numerical relativity, gravitational-wave sources and data analysis, mission formulation, theoretical modeling of high energy astrophysical sources, and precision metrology.
