On June 1, the Laser Interferometry Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO) announced its third detection of gravitational waves. Check out the discovery paper as well as open access resources on LIGO & gravitational waves: an annotated collection of technical reports, peer-reviewed articles, conference papers, and theses, freely available in the DSpace@MIT repository, that describe work done at MIT, from the earliest science to post-detection research.
