Do Gravity Waves Exist?
This is one of the big unanswered questions
in physics. Gravity telescopes such as the LIGO
and the Geo 600
may soon tell us. These massive detectors are sensitive to a displacement of 1 part in 1000000000000000000000-- that's like "measuring a change of one hydrogen atom diameter in the distance from the Earth to the Sun."
Such a discovery would mean a tremendous boom to science. And big cash payouts to those who put their money where there mouth was
