Interstellar cosmic news: ‘Gravitational Waves’: a momentous occurrence took place few days back. As per Einstein’s prediction exactly a century ago when he expounded his theory of relativity, 2 black holes had collided a billion years ago. The gravitational waves generated by this collision traveled through time and space and reached special receivers on earth. Everything about this is extremely extraordinary. How did Einstein form these predictions at time when astronomic science was at its infancy, there were no modern type measuring or instruments, etc etc., next, to even predict such an occurrence and presence of gravitational waves is nothing short of miraculous? And to have it proved 100 years later. And also for current scientists to create equipment to listen into such micro waves traveling to earth. The Universe is so mind bogglingly complex that the human brain really fails to begin to comprehend its enormity. Everyone should google and try to understand this occurrence. It will shed fresh light on so many issues, including give some more info on the Big Bang, which created the universe. It’s one more bit of knowledge which will add up to the human space/time travel of the future, when we will use the black holes to travel through time and space into far flung galaxies. Much more can be written on this subject but will need reams of space and make it too lengthy to read on FB.
Both gravitational waves and black holes are very fundamental physics tenets, which yet need to be explored scientifically and explained.
We can expect some answers in the next couple of decades, when outer space travel will begin to take place, especially carrying humans. We are at such an early initial stage of the understanding of our universe.
The Nobrl prize in 2017 has gone to Rainer Weiss, the other half jointly to Barry C. Barish and Kip S. Thorne for their work on Gravitional waves.
