So, finally, LIGO measures the gravitational waves [0]! One might wonder how long they take to measure them. I don't know when they started as in conceptual design stage. But I know that their activity in EPICS collaboration started from 1996 [1]. This kind of truly basic science research activity NEVER be in S.Korea. They are supported more than 20 years to measure "Gravitational Waves" without any results.

In addition, I really like to hear that EPICS is a fundamental part of their control system [2].

Thank you, EPICS collaborators, for your endless coding, discussing, and developing. I really like to be one of EPICS collaboration members.
