The first observation of two merging black holes by LIGO

For the first time, scientists have observed ripples of space-time, called gravitational waves, which - triggered by a major event in the distant universe - reached the earth. This observation confirms an important prediction of the general relativity theory formulated by Albert Einstein in 1915. At the same time it opens a completely new window to the cosmos.
