In Costa Rica, my home country, the public has been very excited to know that a fellow Costa Rican has been involved in this gravitational/electromagnetic wave breakthrough discovery. I gave a public lecture at my former university, Universidad de Costa Rica, in December 2017.
Several media interviewed me (in Spanish) regarding the LIGO/VIRGO discovery, our discovery, my experience, etc.
- An article published in La Nación, Costa Rica’s main newspaper, can be found here. This newspaper also highlighted the discovery as the neutron star merger as being the scientific breakthrough of 2017.
- A very popular radio show, Nuestra Voz, interviewed me live. You can listen to the audio here (starts at minute 10), and read their article here.
