Gravity Discovery Makes for Big Waves
Scientists announced to the world earlier this year that they had discovered gravitational waves.1 This remarkable, Nobel Prize-worthy achievement is laden with significant cosmological implications, including what or who is responsible for the universe's existence.
The instrument used for the discovery is itself noteworthy. The Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) is the world's most sensitive detector and can detect a distortion in space-time of 0.001, the diameter of a single atomic nucleus, across a 4-kilometer laser baseline. The LIGO team affirmed what many physicists consider the most significant prediction of Einstein's theory of general...
