Gravitational Waves

The confirmation of gravitational waves is simply a huge moment for science. A lot of people have spent their lives building instruments in hope for this day. From one who maintains another great scientific instrument to those who built LIGO… Congratulations!!

Not to understate the magnitude of the achievement, this is a huge discovery, but as usual XKCD puts a fun spin on the moment…
