The thrilling inside story of National Geographic's top "Discovery of the Decade," the detection of gravitational waves from deep space, which opened up the 95% of the universe that has been dark to our existing observatories and space telescopes. It's the violent "warped side" of the universe predicted by Einstein -- colliding black holes and crashing neutron stars -- but never seen before. A thousand rebel scientists around the world risked their careers on a 50-year, $1 billion search. The discovery earned the documentary’s three principal characters (including Kip Thorne, executive producer of Interstellar), the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics.
