#Science #AlbertEinstein – Albert Einstein’s theory of existence of gravitational waves proven right after 100 years : The prediction of Albert Einstein in 1915 about the existence of gravitational waves that bind space and time has been proven right by a group of scientists who now believe that they have a gateway to understanding the “dark” side of the universe.
There have been confirmations from physicists from across the world about gravitational waves originating from two large black holes in the universe, which are more than 1.5 billion light years away from Earth.
In a moment’s time, the black holes that collided with each other are believed to have produced immense energy that is still believed to be traveling after it reached earth 1.5 billion years after the event. These waves were captured by the gravitational wave instruments set up on Earth by scientists.
The new discovery has not only proved true the theory of relativity put forward by Albert Einstein but also is the first ever direct detection of black hole collision.
Black holes are mysterious regions in space where the pulling force of gravity is so strong that light is not able to escape. The strong gravity occurs because matter has been pressed into a tiny space.
Eminent scientists are of the opinion that the discovery of the gravitational waves is way ahead of the discovery of Higgs Boson as it has now offered new avenues to understanding the universe and the unexplored areas of the universe.
Two earth stations in America, equipped with super sensitive instruments that are capable of detecting sub-atomic movements in the space registered same activities that are caused when gravitational waves pass through the Earth.
