That's right. Until now, gravitational waves have only been inferred by observing the motion of binary systems (a bit like watching boats bobbing up and down in the water). This research shows something a bit more like a mark a wave left when it passed by a very long time ago.
So it is not outright detection, i.e., observing a gravitational wave passing by today, but it is very interesting none-the-less.
Beers all round.
