Gravitational Waves Discovered

And so it begins …

This post is a  very special one due to the fact that on 2/11/2016 it was announced that long ago predicted from General Relativity Theory gravitational waves were detected by

Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory  (LIGO) in USA.

This is the most exciting discovery of the 21st century so far and its consequences are hard to predict. What is for sure that now we have a mean to probe what happens in the places such as where black holes collide.

I congratulate all of humankind with this achievement that is a great example of science teams collaboration around the world that is a way to go.
