Gravitational Waves Discovery Affirming Einstein’s Theory?

The National Science Foundation, which has funded the research, stated that scientists will hold a press conference on Thursday to talk about the latest in their chase for gravitational waves, as envisioned by Albert Einstein in his theory of general relativity.

The National Science Foundation, which has funded the research, stated that scientists will hold a press conference on Thursday to talk about the latest in their chase for gravitational waves, as envisioned by Albert Einstein in his theory of general relativity.

Phys.Org reports that the institutions that will participate in the press conference are scientists from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory, and the California Institute of Technology, also known as the Caltech.

As stated by the Sydney Morning Herald, “Einstein’s theory turn upside down Isaac Newton’s comprehension of gravity by showing that matter and time were inextricably linked. Rather than gravity being an immediate attraction between objects across infinite space, Einstein exhibited that space-time was the four-dimensional structure of the universe by which matter, energy and gravity were all mediated through space-time, with interactions limited to no faster than the speed of light.”

The conclusion drawn from this theory of the gravitational waves is certain to happen. Gravitational waves are tiny ripples in the fabric of space-time; it would take a large and heavy event in the fabric of space-time for individuals to be able to detect them.

An astronomer at the Cote d’Azur Observatory in France, Catherine Man, said in a statement, “Now people are no longer perceiving the universe with telescopes using ultraviolet light or visible light, however, we are listening to the noises made by the effects of the gravitation of celestial bodies on the fabric of space-time, which could come from stars or black holes.”

LIGO stated that as this year will mark the 100th anniversary of the first publication of Albert Einstein’s prediction of gravitational waves, the group will talk about their ongoing efforts to observe such.
