For the first time ever, scientists have detected gravitational waves - or ripples in space time - using a precise measuring device called LIGO. The discovery supports Albert Einstein’s theory of general relativity, which predicted the existence of gravitational waves. The detection also marks the first time a Binary Black Hole system was directly observed by scientists. National Science Foundation and LIGO
