Gravitational waves. One more tiny step in understanding the universe. Thanks for posting that.

Pretty wild stuff. I'm fascinated by astronomy.


Cheers,

Very cool stuff indeed! We were geeking out about it at work all day. I'm really looking forward to seeing where this takes LIGO in the future.
