Big Lasers are Awesome

The advanced Ligo instrument has made progress, and now has the ability to detect black hole collisions 27 megaparsecs (33 million light years, 833132947000000000000000 meters). The final goal is to be able to measure gravitational waves 200 megaparsecs away, 10 times larger than the original Ligo.
