Physicists have searched for ripples in the fabric of spacetime, called gravitational waves, for nearly 100 years. The Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) has been searching for these gravitational waves since 2002 with no luck. But a more powerful, advanced LIGO — about three times more sensitive than the original detector — started operating in September 2015. And now a rumor is circulating that physicists at the new and improved LIGO have finally detected the elusive waves. If it's true, it will be one of the most important discoveries in physics in the last century. http://www.techinsider.io/gravity-waves-detected-rumor-2016-1 I hope this is true.
