Gravitational waves detected 100 years after their prediction by Einstein

For the first time, scientists have observed ripples in space-time, called gravitational waves, produced by a cataclysmic event from the far Universe, arriving to Earth after a long journey. This result confirms a major prediction of the Theory of General Relativity made by Albert Einstein in 1915, and opens a completely new window into the Cosmos.

Mass measurement by spectroscopy of trapped molecular ions

In collaboration between a group from the Amsterdam VU University and the Trapped Ions group of LKB, the masses of the electron and the proton have been compared with very high precision. This comparison was made using laser spectroscopy; a method that was suggested forty years ago, but has now been realized for the first time by the Dutch-French collaboration.
