    Careful, the media is always very quick to call evidence proof. In order for the results to be considered reliable they must first be reproduced and the data collected by the detector must be analysed. This process can take months to do, so don't jump to conclusions yet. It does look hopeful for general relativity though

    I made another theory that required the existence of gravitational waves many years ago. Have forgotten what that theory is though...

    The real question is... Do gravitational waves cause cancer?

    Hmm.. the consensus seems to be they are ok since they don' cause cancer. But then they don't cure it either. What a waste of time!

    It wouldn't be the first time someone's jumped the gun on gravitational waves

    I have always wondered what exactly is gravity. Its a force generated by massive objects such as planets and stars (and everyday stuff to a negligible degree). But what is the underlying mechanism generating the force of gravity? Magnetism is very similar. Really makes me wonder.
