After ripples were detected in the fabric of space time, intergalactic engineers were flooded with urgent requests to design a cosmic iron.
In 2017, the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory detected gravitational waves for the third time. Described as ripples in space and time, the waves were generated when two black holes collided to form a larger black hole. In this story, Alex Massey combines this discovery with the knowledge that clients can rarely resist a good pun when making research requests.
