Shot inside the laboratories of VIRGO – the Italian antenna that have recently took part in the discovery of gravitational waves – the film explores the utopian challenge at the core of the experiment: isolating the devices from the vibrations of the Earth’s crust, seemingly transporting them in the outer space. The work takes its title from the writings of British sociologist of science Harry Collins, whose research focuses on gravitational wave physics as a primary subject of investigation.
