At 9:38:53 CST on Dec. 25, 2015, scientists observed gravitational waves ripples in the fabric of spacetime for the second time. "Now we've analyzed the rest of the data, and we have another event that’s particularly interesting," said Daniel Holz, assistant professor in physics and astronomy. "It's not quite as loud as the first one, but it's quite beautiful in its own way."
