While Einstein had predicted these waves a century ago he was convinced that we would never be able to detect them. The trio were founders of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO), an organisation spread across 19 universities with over 1000 scientists.
The first detection occurred in September 2015, confirming one prediction of Einstein's theory of general relativity, which he published more than 100 years ago, and led to the identification of large black hole binary systems. It took 1.3 billion years for the waves to arrive at the LIGO detector in the USA.

Kip Thorne, a theoretical professor of physics at California Institute of Technology, also has a special connection with Hollywood. Their brilliance and ingenuity helped make an extremely ambitious project work and their Nobel Prize is immensely well-deserved. This device is meant to anaylse beams, which are sent by any disturbance in the gravitational wave pattern. If it had made this award last year, Scottish physicist Ron Drever would most likely have shared the award with Thorne and Weiss, with whom he worked before his death in March of this year.
The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences that awards Nobel Prizes said the detection of the waves promises a revolution in astrophysics.
