Measuring Ripples in Space-Time

Do gravity waves cause ripples in Space-Time ?



Cataclysmic events, such as this artist's rendition of a binary-star merger, are believed to create gravitational waves that cause ripples in space-time.

So What is a Gravitational Wave?

Atomic Interferometry

Einstein predicted gravity waves in his general theory of relativity, but to date these ripples in the fabric of space-time have never been observed. Now a scientific research technique called Atomic Interferometry is trying to re-write the canon.
