Einstein's general theory of relativity suggests, among other things, that masses in space distort the geometry of space-time. In addition, moving objects emit waves of gravitational radiation that carry energy away into space.

Einstein’s last prediction and one of the most anticipated discoveries in physics has finally been confirmed. The LIGO experiment has seen ripples in space-time, caused by a black hole merger

Einstein's gravitational waves 'seen' from black holes

For the first time, scientists detect tiny, rhythmic distortions in space and time - gravitational waves - predicted by Einstein 100 years ago.

If nothing can escape from a black hole, then how to the 'ripples in spacetime' themselves get loose?

What Are Gravitational Waves? When massive objects crash into each other, there should be a release of gravitational waves. So what are these things and how can we detect them?
