One is in Louisiana and one in Washington.
And, they'll be very far separated from one
anothere so the idea is if a cosmic source
of gravitational waves come to the earthand
it hits the detector in Louisiana and at
the same time it hits the one in Washington,
then we'll know that there's a signal from
gravitational waves there, that it wasn't
just some accident.
