With Rare Documents and Historic Announcement, Einstein Still Sends Waves


Scientists from Caltech, MIT and the LIGO Scientific Collaboration announced that they have discovered evidence of Albert Einstein’s century old gravitational waves prediction. Einstein’s prediction was made over a hundred years ago but only using today’s 21st Century technology are scientists able to confirm his historic prediction. In honor of this remarkable announcement, The Albert Einstein Archives at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem displayed original handwritten documents related to Einstein's prediction of the existence of gravitational waves.

Einstein was one of the founders of The Hebrew University of Jerusalem and one of its greatest supporters. He bequeathed his writings, intellectual heritage and the use of his image to the Hebrew University.
