Entire World To Spend Day Marvelling At Gravitational Waves They Don’t Understand

The entire world woke up today delighted at the news that gravitational waves had finally been found, thereby fulfilling one of the predictions of Einstein’s Theory of general relativity or maybe special relativity.

While delighted at this news and this amazing piece of science, the entire world admitted that it has absolutely no clue what any of this meant, but they kinda liked the swirly graphics.

Several billion wikipedia searches later, the world still had no clue, but were pretty convinced that it deserved a Nobel Prize or two for somebody called LIGO, but again, not many people were sure who he or she actually is.

Nonetheless, the world is now basking in the sure and certain knowledge that gravitational waves exist and…something, something, spacetime science.
