Abstract:
On September 14, 2015, at approximately 09:50:45 UTC the two LIGO gravitational-wave antennas detected a signal of high significance later identified to be the gravitational radiation from the collision of a pair of stellar mass black holes. This observation, consisting of a mere 200 ms of data, has profoundly transformed our understanding of nature and launched humanity into a new area of strong field gravity research and gravitational astronomy.
