October 3, 2017 4:22 PM Nobel Winners' Work In Physics Began With Albert Einstein

Einstein realized that if masses moved about, the deformations in space would also move about, propagating like waves, somewhat like what happens when you throw a rock on a pond. But, gravity being such a weak force, the effect is truly tiny and needs something very dramatic to create a signal we can detect here. This is exactly what was found by LIGO and the Nobel 88

October 3, 2017 11:15 AM They Proved Einstein Right; Now They've Won The 2017 Physics Nobel Prize
