Today's physics/chemistry headlines from the sources selected by our team:

Einstein writings show theory 100 years ahead of time
It took a century, but the theory from Albert Einstein handwritten neatly on paper that is now yellowing has finally been vindicated.

GGC physicist leads team in innovative black hole research
Black holes are the subject of much fascination, not just in science but also in popular media. For example, the 2014 movie "Interstellar" portrays a fast-rotating, supermassive black hole, into which the protagonist falls in order to probe its center.

A 'magical' space-time ripple that wasn't believed, at first
The wave that made history snuck up on them. David Shoemaker will never forget the date—September 14, 2015—when he woke up to a message alerting him that an underground detector had spotted a 1.3-billion-year-old ripple in the fabric of space-time.

In-depth Q&A: Three researchers on the front line of today's gravitational wave discovery
News broke earlier today that elusive ripples in space-time—known as gravitational waves—have been detected for the first time here on Earth by the Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory (LIGO).

Gravitational waves detected 100 years after Einstein's prediction
For the first time, scientists have observed ripples in the fabric of spacetime called gravitational waves, arriving at Earth from a cataclysmic event in the distant universe. This confirms a major prediction of Albert Einstein's 1915 general theory of relativity and opens an unprecedented new window onto the cosmos.

Most accurate optical single-ion clock worldwide
Atomic clock experts have built an optical single-ion clock which attains an accuracy which had only been predicted theoretically so far. Their optical ytterbium clock achieved a relative systematic measurement uncertainty of 3 E-18.

X-ray laser turns crystal imperfections into better images of important biomolecules
Often the most difficult step in taking atomic-resolution images of biological molecules is getting them to form high-quality crystals needed for X-ray studies of their structure. Now researchers have shown they can get sharp images even with imperfect crystals using the world's brightest X-ray source at the Department of Energy's SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory.

LIGO detects first ever gravitational waves – from two merging black holes
Momentous discovery marks start of a new era of gravitational-wave astronomy

Trees break at fixed wind speed, irrespective of size or species
Critical speed is derivable from a few simple scaling laws
