In the most anticipated announcement in physics since the discovery of the Higgs Boson, the first detection of a gravitational wave has been reported. If verified, the find will dispel any lingering doubts about Relativity theory, transform our understanding of the universe’s beginning and provide astrophysicists with a new tool to probe the universe. The importance of the detection is hard to overstate.
If this discovery can be verified, the effects it will have on astronomy, cosmology and astrophysics are hard to put into words.
First the Higgs Boson and now this. Wow, just wow.
