Albert Einstein first came up with the concept of gravitational waves, with the Theory of Relativity as the basis for their existence. A century and countless scientific discoveries later, Einstein’s theory has been confirmed — gravitational waves have been detected by LIGO. This has been labelled as one of the biggest astrophysical discoveries of the century.
