February 1665 Huygens discovered the effect with pendulums locked
in 50 kg wooden boxes coupling over a wooden beam (he was sick, and had
nothing else to do but watch the clocks), a few weeks later 
experimentally he verified it was vibration (in fact, if you
do the experiment you'll discover the vibration is very 

Presumably, very heavy mechanical oscillators in a vacuum
completely isolated from vibration would couple gravitationally.
