Gravitational waves detected for the first time

This article fits with this discussion thread, especially the discussion on the literal gravity and space-time of objects and hyperobjects. A brief excerpt:

"The Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) in the United States has detected gravitational waves for the first time. [...] Gravitational waves are a prediction of Einstein’s Theory of General Relativity. According to Einstein, gravity bends space-time, and the more massive an object is, the larger the effect."
