The study of scattering amplitudes has uncovered extraordinary dualities linking real-world particles such as gravitons, gluons, and pions. We discuss how these developments have been amalgamated with classic tools from effective field theory to derive new results relevant to the search for gravitational waves at LIGO. This approach has produced now state-of-the-art results on conservative orbital dynamics of binary black holes in the post-Minkowskian expansion. We also comment on recent work extending this framework to include tidal effects and spin.
