Monumental Discovery

RIT researchers on team confirming Einstein’s theories



A monumental discovery will change the way scientists view the universe and RIT researchers played a key role in the revelation.
Six RIT researchers are among the authors of a paper announcing what may be the most important scientific discovery in a century – findings that confirm the existence of gravitational waves predicted in Albert Einstein’s general theory of relativity.
For the first time, scientists have observed ripples in the fabric of spacetime called gravitational waves, arriving at the earth from a cataclysmic event in the distant universe. This confirms a major prediction of Albert Einstein’s 1915 general theory of relativity and opens an unprecedented new window onto the cosmos.
