Top definition
The most kick-ass interferometer ever built. Consists of a 200W laser split through two 4km arms, bouncing back, and interfering with itself. Can detect changes of length of less than the diameter of a proton.
LIGO just detected the ripples in spacetime originating from two black holes merging together.
