OVERVIEW

“The curvature of spacetime is influenced by the presence of Gravity” - this statement shows the major breakthrough in the way we perceive the Universe; that came when the genius Albert Einstein published his work on General Relativity. But when this work is related to the outcomes of special relativity - saying that no information can travel faster than light, it was hypothesized that acceleration of masses would cause disturbances in space-time, similar to how accelerating charges produce electromagnetic waves.
Through some interesting events such as neutron stars merging and supernovae, it has been observed that such disturbances in masses cause ripples in the spacetime continuum. These are now called Gravitational Waves. Einstein's mathematics showed that massive accelerating objects (such as neutron stars or black holes orbiting each other) would disrupt space-time in such a way that 'waves' of distorted space would radiate from the source.
Through recent times efforts have been made to observe and study these waves and their properties. Studying them reveals about the structure and history of our universe.
