We describe the main scientific developments that lead LIGO project to the detection of the gravitational waves: general relativity, black holes and gravitational waves predictions; numerical relativity and the collision and coalescence simulations of binary black holes and the development of different kind of gravitational wave detectors. Most important, this detection is confirming the existence of the enigmatic black holes.
