    "Listening to whispers: Digging for gravitational wave signals": LIGO and its European partner Virgo have made scientific history by detecting gravitational waves. This is a triumph of experimental physics and engineering, but also of data analysis: most of the science requires digging deep into instrumental noise for the shapes and directions of the signals.
