On 2016 February 11, two major international scientific collaborations jointly announced the discovery of gravitational waves, the elusive ripples in the space-time predicted by Albert Einstein exactly a hundred years ago. At times, even Einstein doubted the existence of gravitational waves in nature and never imagined that they would ever be detected. This lecture will tell the story of the quest for the detection of gravitational waves, culminated in the recent discovery by LIGO.
