Gravitational waves, computer artwork. Scientists have finally detected gravitational waves time predicted by Einstein in his theory of general relativity. The phenomenon has until now never been detected but it is thought to occur when massive cosmic objects orbit one another, such as twin black holes or neutron stars and radiate gravitational waves. Scientists working on the LIGO announced their results on the 11th February 2016.
