Two black holes that collided 1.3 billion years ago created the wave detected at two special observatories at Hanford and in Louisiana, officials announced Thursday morning."

“Ladies and gentlemen, we have detected gravitational waves. We did it!” said David Reitze, a physicist and executive director of the LIGO Scientific Collaboration. “I am so pleased to be able to tell you that.”
“It’s mind-boggling,” he said."
