A major scientific discovery will likely go unnoticed amongst the US political hubris, and during a time that science in general is on the back burner, politics trumping science.

Scientists from the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO) announced that they have detected gravitational waves, ushering in a new era in the way humans can observe the universe.

Scientists announced they have succeeded in detecting gravitational waves from the violent merging of two black holes in deep space.

The detection was hailed as a triumph for a controversial, exquisitely crafted, billion-dollar physics experiment and as confirmation of a key prediction of Albert Einstein's General Theory of Relativity one hundred years ago.

It will also inaugurate a new era of astronomy in which gravitational waves are tools for studying the most mysterious and exotic objects in the universe.
