Where did gravitational waves come from?
« on: 23/02/2016 17:28:50 »
 How do they know where the gravitational waves came from?  because everyone has said oh, itís these two black holes twiddling round each other about a billion light years away and the gravitational waves came across space.  They were out there somewhere, they came in and we detected them. How do they know that?
