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.

Gravity Waves    Gravity waves are distortions in the fabric of space-time predicted by Albert Einstein's theory of general relativity. The gravitational waves travel at the speed of light, but they are so weak that scientists expect to detect only those created during colossal cosmic events, such as black hole mergers like the one shown above. LIGO and LISA are two detectors designed to spot the elusive waves.

Einstein's Gravity Waves Could Be Found with New Method - Gravitational Waves of Two Black Holes

Gravitational waves, invisible ripples in the fabric of space and time, might be detected by looking for the brightening of stars, researchers say.

Ripples in spacetime are what gravitational waves are.

There Is Sound In Space, Thanks To Gravitational Waves

Why does gravity move at the speed of light? Newton thought it was instantaneous, but the story is much richer than that!

100 years after Albert Einstein first proposed these ripples in spacetime as part of his theory of relativity astrophysicists have found proof of their existence.

In Historic First, Einstein's Gravitational Waves Detected Directly

Scientist reportedly just found possible evidence of the existence of gravitational waves the after effects of two black holes colliding in space a long time ago! Einstein predicted this 100 years ago in his theory of general relativity by sportsday

When two extremely dense objects, such as neutron stars (stars so dense the protons and electrons in their atoms collapse to form neutrons) or black holes, orbit each other in binary pairs, their interactions should create ripples in the fabric of space-time called gravitational waves.

Hunt For Elusive 'Gravity Waves' Heats Up

An artists impression of two black holes circling each other, creating gravitational waves. Scientists think many such pairs exist, and together they create a gravitational wave background.

Those gravity waves came from two black holes more massive than any known outside a galactic core and formed in an environment different than the Milky Way.

New technology has been developed to detect the gravity waves first predicted by Einstein in 1916. Gravity waves are ripples in space generated by extreme cosmic events such as colliding stars, black holes, and supernova explosions.

Listening' to black holes form with gravity waves Gravity waves are ripples in space generated by extreme cosmic events such as colliding stars, black holes, and supernova explosions, which carry vast amounts of energy at the speed of light.
