Associate Professor Laura Cadonati explains what gravitational waves are, how they were observed and why they unlock more secrets of the universe.

Georgia Tech Helps LIGO Observe Historic Gravitational Wave

For the first time, scientists have observed ripples in the fabric of spacetime called gravitational waves, validating a prediction made by Albert Einstein 100 years ago. A team of global scientists, which includes 12 Georgia Tech faculty members, postdoctoral fellows and student researchers, announced the finding Thursday morning.  

The observed wave originated from the collision of two black holes nearly 1.5 billion years ago and reached Earth last September. The historic finding is being hailed as one of the century's biggest science discoveries.
