# Is it possible to get a glimpse of the Big Bang through gravitation waves?

1. I read in an article announcing the detection of gravitational waves by LIGO that it will be possible to detect them from the Big Bang. Is this true?

• @SirCumference There's a reference to the beginning of the Universe in this article though it seems like a science writer than an actual physicist answered it msn.com/en-in/news/techandscience/… . There's another one about an earlier claim about gw from the Beginning that was proved false: washingtonpost.com/news/achenblog/wp/2014/09/22/… Feb 15 '16 at 23:08
