Guest Speaker: Professor David Blair
Guest Speaker: Professor David Blair (GGS 1961-1963) - Physicist and Author
David Blair is a world-leading physicist, author and Emeritus Professor of Physics at The University of Western Australia, and he founded the Australian International Gravitational Research Centre at Gingin, which now is the WA Node of the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Gravitational Wave Discovery. 
 
Professor Blair and his team most recently celebrated their involvement in the Nobel Prize-winning detection of gravitational waves, playing a vital role through provision of key technologies for high laser-powered gravitational wave detectors.  For the discovery of gravitational waves, Professor Blair shared the 2016 Special Breakthrough Prize in Fundamental Physics with a large team of international collaborators. Other accolades for Professor Blair include the 2007 Premier’s Western Australian Scientist of the Year award and the 2005 ANZAAS Medal in recognition of his outstanding contribution to world science. Professor Blair co-founded the Gravity Discovery Centre, a centre for science education, and for this he won the Eureka Prize in 2005, a national science award honouring excellence in research and innovation, leadership, science engagement and school science. 
 
While Professor Blair’s research has led to the development of Gravitational Wave Astronomy, he also invented the sapphire clock, now in use in time standards laboratories around the world.
