A Brief History of Gravitational Waves
Jorge L. Cervantes-Cota, Salvador Galindo-Uribarri, George F. Smoot
This review describes the discovery of gravitational waves. We recount the
journey of predicting and finding those waves, since its beginning in the early
twentieth century, their prediction by Einstein in 1916, theoretical and
experimental blunders, efforts towards their detection, and finally the
subsequent successful discovery.
