What are gravitational waves? How are these ripples in space-time created? Albert Einstein predicted their existence in 1916, and a century later, scientists detected these waves using incredibly precise laser technology here on Earth. See the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) and Lucia, a Ph.D. student in physics, on an exploration of gravitational waves and their importance in helping understand the universe.
