Gravity Waves a Fond Farewell
Cyndi Lavin, 2017
The LIGO Labsite is one of the detectors working on gravitational waves. I'm not even going to pretend that I understand everything about it, even though I've read all the layman's scientific articles on it that I can find. Gravitational waves are in general caused by accelerations that are not symmetrical...like stars going supernova or black holes colliding. The image above is my interpretation of two black holes circling prior to a collision.
