Nobel prize for gravitational wave detection
Three American scientists from the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) have won the Nobel Prize in Physics for their contribution to detecting gravitational waves.
These waves are ripples in the fabrics of spacetime which were predicted by Albert Einstein a hundred years ago.
The scientists were awarded the Nobel prize “for decisive contributions to the LIGO detector and the observation of gravitational waves”.
What are gravitational waves?
In simple terms, gravitational waves can be explained as ripples in the fabric of space-time which can only be caused by massive astronomical events such as neutron stars or black holes orbiting each other so that these waves would finally radiate from them.
