Gravitational waves differ from gravity waves. Gravitational waves are ripples in space-time that travel outward from a source. In the twentieth century the existence of gravitation waves was proved, but not directly observed. The theory explains that a massive object like Earth distorts space-time around it The larger the object, the more space-time is distorted as a direct result of that object's presence.
One illustrative explanation is that if a marble were circling around the bowling ball on the dimpled trampoline, the marble would fall inward, toward the bowling ball, like a rock in space circling a planet.
