The New Yorker wrote an article calledGravitational Waves Exist The Inside Story of How Scientists Finally Found ThemThe article describes how Professor Rainer Weiss idea to build a device sensitive enough to detect ripples in space-time became aprofessional obsession and a quest that spanned ahalfcentury This quest had a team of over 1000 scientists and engineers focused on the task

When black holes merge strong gravitational waves are emitted. The graph shows a state-of-the-art comparison between waveforms of a black hole binary calculated according to two different techniques (top panel); the lower panel shows the final few cycles, including the merger of the two black holes.
