From The New York Times, Oct. 16, 2017: This is the first time LIGO has discovered anything that regular astronomers could see and study. One of the group of astronomers who spotted the speck of light was led by Marcelle Soares-Santos of Brandeis University and using the Dark Energy Camera.

Scientists furthered studies of the Higgs boson, neutrinos, dark matter, dark energy and cosmic inflation and continued the search for undiscovered particles, forces and principles.

From Science Node, Feb. 17, 2016: Einstein predicted gravitational waves over 100 years ago. Resources provided by the Open Science Grid, of which Fermilab is an active member, are helping LIGO prove he was right.
