ITALY-SCIENCE-VIRGO-EGO-GRAVITATIONAL WAVES

A picture shows a 3km-long arm part of the Virgo detector for gravitational waves that is located within the site of EGO, European Gravitational Observatory, on February 9, 2016 between Cascina and Pisa in Tuscany. An international team of Scientists will hold a press conference on February 11, 2016 in the Uited States to discuss the latest in their hunt for the gravitational waves, whose existence Albert Einstein predicted in his theory of general relativity 100 years ago, according to a statement from the National Science Foundation, which has funded the research. The announcement of a press conference revived rumors that have been circulating in the scientific community for months that the LIGO team may have indeed directly detected gravitational waves for the first time. / AFP / CLAUDIO GIOVANNINI (Photo credit should read CLAUDIO GIOVANNINI/AFP/Getty Images)
