Einstein's Century-Old Prediction Confirmed: Gravitational Waves Exist
Scientists announced that they have finally detected the vibrations in space and time first predicted by Albert Einstein 100 years ago.
Albert Einstein Was Right: Scientists Detect Gravitational Waves
If Albert Einstein was alive today, he'd be saying: "I told you so." In one of the most experimental findings in recent years, scientists announced today they have detected gravitational waves, vibrations of space and time, proving Einstein was right 100 years after he first predicted their
Scientists Plan to Capture Image of Black Hole's 'Point of No Return'
Perhaps one of the biggest space oddities is the mysterious point of no return inside of a black hole. Scientists now believe they're on track to get the first-ever photo of the unexplored area -- called the event horizon -- by 2017. Using a network of nine telescopes, a project called the Event
