Have scientists detected gravitational waves?

news-ligo-control-room

Recent rumors suggest that gravitational waves may have been directly detected for the first time.
Gravitational waves – ripples in the fabric of space-time that carry energy across the universe – were first proposed by Albert Einstein as a consequence of his General Theory of Relativity back in 1916.

While strong circumstantial evidence for these waves has existed for years, scientists have never been able to directly detect them. Now however, an experiment known as the Advanced Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO), might have actually found something.

While details are sketchy at this point, cosmologist Lawrence Krauss has indicated that he has received confirmation about a possible discovery and that more details should be coming soon. – See more at: http://www.unexplained-mysteries.com/news/290411/have-scientists-detected-gravitational-waves#sthash.l7TkgbMH.dpuf
