Major Discovery: 'Smoking Gun' for Universe's Incredible Big Bang Expansion Found

Einstein's general theory of relativity suggests, among other things, that masses in space distort the geometry of space-time. In addition, moving objects emit waves of gravitational radiation that carry energy away into space
