On Thursday, scientists confirmed yet another aspect of Albert Einstein’s theory of gravity.

Rumors were correct, and researchers at the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) announced that they directly detected a gravitational wave, or a ripple in the fabric of space-time. LIGO’s twin detectors, in Louisiana and Washington state, use lasers to watch for these tiny stretches and squeezes of space-time. Einstein published his pioneering work predicting the existence of gravitational ripples a century ago. The timing of the LIGO breakthrough couldn’t be better.
