Gravitational Waves: Ripples in Space-Time Detected For First Time

by Maggie Fox

Excited scientists announced Thursday they have detected gravitational waves — distortions in space-time — from the collision of two black holes 1.3 billion years ago.

It's a discovery that was widely predicted but never actually proven, and it confirms many of Albert Einstein's theories about the universe.

"Ladies and gentlemen, we have detected gravitational waves," David Reitze, executive director of Caltech's twin Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) laboratory, said at a news conference in Washington, D.C.

"We did it!" Reitze said to an unusual standing ovation.

Cool but i thought some other team said they already proved it with another detector ?

FUD first & ask questions later™

No, this is a first in history. There are only two LIGO detectors today (one each in Louisiana and Washington). A third one was supposed to be built in India to assist in triangulation, but funding problems delayed the project.

Any independent confirmation?

The cold fusion thing made me cautious when revolutionary things are discovered

This is nothing revolutionary, its been at the heart of our physics models a long time, it was just an empirical conformation, one very hard to achieve.
