    U.S. physicists say they've detected gravitational waves for the very first time, marking a discovery that proves one of Albert Einstein's last unverified theories about the universe. Einstein theorized that gravitational waves are tiny ripples in the fabric of space-time created by all objects moving through time and space. Researchers from the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory revealed today that they've detected some of these ripples, created by the collision of two gigantic black holes. The discovery is expected to open up a whole new avenue for physicists to examine the nature and history of the universe.

In his closing arguments, Callaghan says that each of the complainants reacted to the alleged sexual assaults in their own unique ways based on their individual personalities and life experiences.
