"This week, a team of physicists published a paper in the LINK HERE journalPhysical Review Letters with more than 1,000 contributing authors. As you might expect, this paper is of monumental historical importance: After a century of waiting, physicists have finally confirmed the existence of gravitational waves. In so doing, they’ve confirmed the last major prediction of Einstein’s theory of general relativity and, they believe, offered a way forward for the study of black holes. This observation, catchily dubbed GW150914, looks to astronomers like the start of a whole new day for astrophysics."

astonishment. “I never heard of such a thing!”

memory works both ways.”
