Physics Nobel Goes to American trio for Detecting Gravitational Waves

The 2017 Nobel Prize for Physics has been awarded to three American scientists for their roles in capturing actual gravitational waves. 100 years ago Albert Einstein believed the waves were real in his theory of relativity and in September of 2015 Rainer Weiss (a physics professor at Massachusetts Institute of Technology), Barry C. Barish and Kip S. Thorne (both employed by the California Institute of Technology) proved just that.
