Almost A Year Ago Today We Heard What Gravitational Waves Sound Like

In case you missed it, on Thursday February 11 scientists from the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) announced they had detected gravitational waves for the first time in history. If you don’t follow news about space often then this may not sound like a big deal but let me assure you, it’s a HUGE deal. It’s actually one of the biggest astrophysical discoveries ever.

To make this discovery even more awesome, this proved a theory put forth by Albert Einstein a century ago!

The video below will explain in detail where the gravitational waves came from and how we were able to achieve this discovery using the fascinating technology of LIGO.
