Many years of effort and more than one thousand physicists have been focused on finding evidence of gravitational waves. Success was achieved on September 14, 2015 when gravitational waves were detected by the Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory (LIGO) detectors located in Livingston, LA and Hanford, WA. The existence of gravitational waves is one of
