Albert Einstein predicted the existence of gravitational waves 100 years ago. They have recently been detected from a binary black hole merger by the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO). The physics of gravitational waves, the detection techniques, the observations and their implications will all be discussed.
