Scientists may have got a glimpse of how the universe was born
Astronomers are expected to announce they have found ‘primordial gravitational waves’ – an echo of the big bang in which the universe came into existence 14bn years ago.
Described as ‘like a message from the dawn of time’, if confirmed it it would be a groundbreaking discovery that would change the face of physics and give scientists their first glimpse of how the universe was born.
Gravitational waves, the last untested prediction of Albert Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity, are minuscule ripples in the fabric of the universe that carry energy across space – rather like the waves than travel across an ocean.
