Really Smart



gravitational wave
Gravitational waves? More like Gravitational ‘Meh’ waves. It’s one of those concepts that sounds so cool but ya know, it doesn’t really do anything except maybe cause a little ripple in the universe. It’s just a disturbance in the fabric of space-time caused by the acceleration of massive objects. I mean, it’s like when you throw a rock into a pond and it causes ripples. But instead of a pond, it’s the entire universe. It’s like, ‘oh wow, the universe just shifted a tiny bit’. Whoop-dee-doo. Fun Fact: Gravitational waves were first predicted by Albert Einstein in his theory of General Relativity over 100 years ago, and it was only recently in 2015 that scientists actually detected them.
