Observatory detects waves from two colliding black holes1

It has been a week since scientists confirmed a major prediction from Albert Einstein.

His general theory of relativity has been proven 100 years after its creation.

CCTV America’s Mark Niu visits the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave observatory, or LIGO-one for short.

It’s in the isolated flatlands of South Central Washington State. The LIGO Hanford Observatory has detected vibrations that are shaking up the scientific world.

It’s one of the places that helped make the discovery possible.
