Gravitational waves and Earth and Moon. Illustration of gravitational waves distorting space-time around the Earth and Moon. Gravitational waves are theorised to carry gravitational energy at the speed of light. They would be produced in relatively large quantities by events such as the merging of black holes. Gravitational waves were predicted by Einstein in 1916. Their detection was announced in 2016 by the LIGO Scientific Collaboration.
