Scientists have actually managed to measure gravitational waves as two black holes merged 1.3 billion lightyears away!

Here's the paper published in the journal Physics Reviews Letters .

And here's the blog that gave me that link and explained it a bit better for my non-physicist brain .

Is that cool or what?! :woohoo:
