NASA’s Hubble Studies Source of Gravitational Waves

On Aug. 17, 2017, weak ripples in the fabric of space-time known as gravitational waves washed over Earth. Unlike previously detected gravitational waves, these were accompanied by light, allowing astronomerAnchors to pinpoint the source. NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope turned its powerful gaze onto the new beacon.
