Watch Live: LIGO Scientists Settle Gravitational Wave Rumors

On Thursday, the world will find out if scientists confirmed yet another aspect of Albert Einstein’s theory of gravity.

If rumors are correct, researchers at the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) will announce that they’ve directly detected a gravitational wave, or a ripple in the fabric of space-time. LIGO’s twin detectors, in Louisiana and Washington state, use lasers to watch for these tiny stretches and squeezes of space-time. Einstein published his pioneering
