California: Researchers, on Thursday, announced to have spotted gravity waves or 'ripples in space-time' a century after Albert Einstein's prediction.

A team of experts at Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO), United States of America (USA) who have been working since years to spot gravitational waves have finally succeeded in locating them.

The discovery could further explain how universe was formed and explore its deepest and darkest edges.

  • Ripples in space-time were predicted by Albert Einstein almost a century ago.
  • The discovery is described as the biggest scientific breakthrough of the century.
  • Professor Stephen Hawking congratulated the researchers on the groundbreaking discovery.
  • Now that the gravitational waves are detectable, it opens up the universe to completely new investigations.
  • Gravitational waves would open up to a new era in astronomy.
  • Gravitation wave astronomy can explore about the formation of black holes.
