"Missing" waves of Einstein's theory leave scientists puzzled

Albert Einstein's theory of relativity-which uses geometry to describe how gravity shapes the universe and celestial motions-has withstood every test scientists have thrown at it. But one festering problem is starting to raise eyebrows. Einstein's elegant theory predicts a type of cosmic fluctuation known as gravitational waves. But these haven't directly shown ...
