Most complicated experiment ever hopes to detect gravitational waves…

A proposed experiment hopes to find gravitational waves, which are hypothetical fluctuations in the fabric of spacetime. All it needs is three satellites orbiting the Sun, and lasers capable of detecting movements as tiny as a trillionth of a meter. » 11/29/10 2:26pm 11/29/10 2:26pm
