In 2016, Rainer Weisz made a splash by identifying 'gravitational webs'. Albert Einstein's predictions proved to be quite popular at the time. Rainer identified the wave while working with a team of scientists at the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Web Observatory (LIGO). The discovery earned him the Nobel Prize in 2016.

This Nobel laureate scientist also dropped out once in his academic life. After graduating from Columbia Grammar School, he enrolled at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the United States. At that time music and electronics attracted him more. While still a student at MIT, Rainer fell in love with a woman. He tried to learn to dance and play the piano from her. On the one hand, love, on the other hand, the complex calculations of electrical engineering Habudubu, eating habudubu, love, he said goodbye to his studies.

In the end, however, this successful scientist was named in the group of 'failed lovers'. Rainer's comment, 'I was madly in love then. Surely no one loves a madman! Everyone said I was finished because I couldn't pass college. In fact, it is not. I still had a chance. ' Rainer Weisz returned to his studies after pouring everything he had. He first took a job as a technician on a project at MIT under Gerald Zacharias, a professor at MIT. He later received his bachelor's and PhD degrees under Gerold's supervision. Interestingly, he later joined as a teacher at the same MIT where he was dropped out.
