As you may, or may not, have heard in the news recently, scientists have recorded the first direct evidence of gravitational waves in space, proving Einstein’s theory. The recording captured two black holes colliding nearly one billion light years away. The recording can be here in the link I’ll post at the end.
This is incredible! We now have proof of the existence of gravitational waves and the fabrics of space and time, and that they can shift and bend! This type of discovery is just mind boggling to me.
I’ve always been super curious about these things, about what’s out in space, how all of it works. It’s pretty mind-boggling, when you think about it. We now have proven that black holes exist, and that time and space are interwoven an can be warped and shaped. This opens up all sorts of pathways to further discoveries of the vast emptiness of space that’s out there. It’s awesome! I think the reason space has always intrigued me is that we don’t know what’s out there. There could be anything! I find myself thinking about what our future will hold in space, in 100 years, in 200 years? 1000 years? Who knows? There’s endless possibilities in the vast ocean of stars out there.
