Explaining the Work that Won 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics

Akshat Rathi, writing for Quartz, does an amazing job in explaining (at least to/for me) the work that won Rainer Wess, Barry Barish and Kip Thorne the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics

The winners, who all work for LIGO (the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory), were given the prize for “decisive contributions” to a detector that helps detect gravitational waves. These waves are created when two massive objects, like black holes, merge or are ripped apart. Detecting them is a “direct testimony” to disruptions in space-time, said the Nobel committee.
