According to Einstein's theory of gravitation, the white dwarfs are spiraling toward
each other because they're losing energy in the form of gravitational waves—
invisible ripples in spacetime that cause objects with mass to bob up and down.

Most significant, gravity waves are made of the very stuff out of which black holes
are made — spacetime curvature. The trick is to detect the ripples of spacetime

Gravitational waves are ripples of spacetime generated as masses are
accelerated. It is one of the central predictions of Einsteins' general theory of
relativity but despite decades of effort these ripples in spacetime have still not
been observed ...

Similarly, the prediction by the general theory of gravitational radiation— literally
ripples in spacetime— was once viewed with great skepticism. Today, however,
most theoreticians believe that such radiation exists and that its detection from ...
