New gravity waves hit Earth after record-breaking trip through space | Penn State University
A record-breaking billions of light-years from Earth, gravitational waves produced by the birth of a massive black hole have been detected by the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO), an international project that includes Penn State scientists. This achievement indicates that LIGO's success in detecting gravitational waves has opened the door to an entirely new way to explore and understand the universe.
