In 2014, a big commotion was going on in the scientific community.  The American ‘BICEP2’ team claimed to have discovered ripples or gravitational waves.  European scientists were skeptical and tested the data.  They found that what the American’s detected was lens interference and that of galaxies (see: http://www.sacerdotus.com/2014/03/inflation-lemaitre-was-correct.html).  Gravitational waves were predicted by Albert Einstein just 100 years ago.  The existence of these waves would provide further evidence that the universe did start at a ‘big bang.’  Anyhow, after the disappointment from the ‘BICEP2’ team, Lawrence Krauss posted some tweets that caused a buzz. He claimed that the science institution ‘LIGO’ found evidence of gravitational ways.  He was immediately attacked by others, including his peers for making such a suggestion. However, it seems that he was correct.  ‘LIGO’ did in fact announce that they will be revealing some information on gravitational ways tomorrow, February 11, 2016 at 10:30 AM EST.

I will keep you posted as I learn more information, stay tuned.  Here are the tweets Krauss was sending out:
