Gravitational Waves!

Gravitational Waves detected! Nice work LIGO!  Here’s a NYT article and here’s an informative video.

This news came out the day before I taught gravitational field theory to my 12th grade physics class (gravitational waves are just propagating oscillations of a gravitational field). Exciting!
