Observation of Gravitational Waves from a Binary Black Hole Merger
One hundred years ago, Albert Einstein predicted in his general theory of relativity the existence of gravitational waves. These ripples in space-time propagate at the speed of light and were directly observed for the very first time on September 14, 2015. new
