Accolades poured in from across the science world, as experts hailed a discovery that will help mankind better understand the universe.

"This expands hugely the way we can observe the cosmos, and the kinds of physics and astrophysics we can do," said professor Sheila Rowan, Director of the University of Glasgow's Institute for Gravitational Research.

Abhay Ashtekar, director of the Institute for Gravitation and the Cosmos at Penn State University, described the discovery as "breathtaking" and said it "will stand out among the major achievements of the 21st-century science."

"We can now listen to the universe rather than just look at it," said Professor B S Sathyaprakash of Cardiff University. "This window turns on the soundtrack for the universe."
