Gravitational waves were predicted by Einstein in 1916, and directly detected, for the first time, by the LIGO interferometers on September 14th 2015. I describe the science of the LIGO instruments, the sources, the events, and the future of observations in a completely new frontier for physics, astronomy and astrophysics.
