Gravitational waves detected from second pair of colliding black holes

A frame from visualization of two black holes colliding into a single hole and emitting gravitational waves
On December 26, 2015 at 03:38:53 UTC the LIGO Scientific Collaboration and the Virgo collaboration observed gravitational waves – ripples in the fabric of spacetime – for the second time. The gravitational waves were detected by both of the twin Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) detectors, located in Livingston, Louisiana, and Hanford, Washington, USA. ----
