LIGO Hears a Ripple in Space-Time

By DENNIS OVERBYE, JONATHAN CORUM and JASON DRAKEFORD

NYT        Feb. 11, 2016 | 4:36

 

About a hundred years ago,

Einstein predicted the existence of gravitational waves,

but until now, they were undetectable.

Scientists announce discovery

of clear gravitational wave signal,

ripples in spacetime

first predicted by Albert Einstein

(...) Albert Einstein

used his newly discovered

general theory of relativity

(which implies that space itself

responds to the presence of matter

by curving, expanding or contracting)

to demonstrate that each time

we wave our hands around or move any matter,

disturbances in the fabric of space

propagate out at the speed of light,

as waves travel outward

when a rock is thrown into a lake.

 

As these gravitational waves

traverse space

they will literally cause

distances between objects

alternately to decrease and increase

in an oscillatory manner.

 

This, of course,

is far from the realm

of human experience.

 

In the absence of alcohol,

your living room doesn’t appear

to shrink and grow repeatedly.

 

But, in fact, it does.
