“The ‘Big Bang’ Signal That Shouldn’t Exist”

LIGO Detects "Big Bang" Signal --Ringing the Fabric of Spacetime, Like a Cosmic Bell

 

“Einstein’s gravitational theory, said to be the greatest single achievement of theoretical physics, resulted in beautiful relations connecting gravitational phenomena with the geometry of space,” said the great Caltech physicist Richard Feynman. For all its vast voids, the universe is rippling with ghostly gravitational waves produced by extreme astrophysical phenomena, vibrating the fabric of space-time, like the ringing of a cosmic bell.
