Seven years ago, researchers at the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) reported the first detection of gravitational waves. Now, the list of gravitational wave candidates number nearly 100.

And astronomers are hopeful they can find more of these ripples in the fabric of spacetime, caused by the acceleration of massive objects, such as two black holes spiral towards each other for a catastrophic meltdown.
