THEY PROVED EINSTEIN’s THEORY OF RELATIVITY, basically, and they proved the detection of gravity waves.
I’m a nerd, but I don’t pretend to understand this. All I know is that they say you BEND space now, that they found two black holes COLLIDING and the energy that came from that, about 3 times the mass of our Sun, expanded out in waves like sound waves.
So, we can now HEAR THE UNIVERSE, the parts we can’t see, and it’s said that we can “hear” the fringes of the universe, essentially going back in time to find out more about the universe. Black holes as well, and don’t they scare you? The THOUGHT of them?
SORRY GUYS, I’m just having a moment here. About the universe, and the sheer MASSIVENESS of it, and the fact that we’re really fucking insignificant. And of course, GRAVITY WAVES.
I might not UNDERSTAND it fully, but that doesn’t mean I can’t realise what an enormous discovery this is. We have access to knowledge and to a theory that was presented 100 years ago, FINALLY.
Is it just me that’s freaking out a bit, or are you guys just staring at the screen, thinking, “WHAT THE HELL is she talking about?!”
I don’t have a clue, but again, this is SCARY as hell. If you’ve heard the gravity wave sound at the frequency we CAN hear, you’ll understand.
Nerd rant is OVER.
What d’ya think?
