this is cool, except we have to wait 10 years!

    I got a pop up that said I could win 500 L's. What's that?

    I have to agree with ya blu, this sounds extremely cool... but rediculously expensive!

    Largest scientific instrument ever built to prove Einstein's theory of general relativity - Telegraph

    Which means, unless a private company foots the bill, it'll be scrapped. Don't lose hope though there is a multitude of scientists working on a way to prove or disprove Einstein's gravitational wave theory.
    Heres a good one;
    Pulsar Grid to Prove Einstein's Gravitational Wave Theory - Fermi has discovered several in the Milky Way - Softpedia

    More on what NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope has compiled;
    Astronomers get new tools for gravitational-wave detection

    Unless some major calamity were to happen worlwide, this will be a very interesting next 50 years for space and technology.
