Einstein was right, again, this time about gravitational waves, and this will be the scientific announcement of the decade.
Caltech and MIT researchers will announce on Thursday, according to rumors, the discovery of gravitational waves, visualized by the NASA Ames Research Center’s Columbia supercomputer.

“According to Einstein’s general theory of relativity, gravitational waves explain how mass in the Universe influences the shape of space. Thanks to gravitational waves, the fabric of spacetime around anything that’s particularly massive can become curved, and this curviness can then ripple out elsewhere in space, like how seismic waves propagate in Earth’s crust.”
