++++++ BREAKING NEWS +++++ LIGO announced the discovery of GravitationalWaves. LIGO detected gravitational waves from two black holes merging, 1.3 billion light years away, one 29 times the mass of the sun and the other 36 times, thus observing the last remaining prediction of Einstein's theory of general relativity. LIGO?s dual detectors, based in Hanford, Washington, and Livingston, Louisiana, registered the tremors on 14 September 2015 at almost the same instant. Their sensors registered space-time expanding and contracting by as much as a thousandth of the size of a proton ? a tiny distance, but 10 times larger than the smallest unit LIGO can measure. more
