scientists suck at secrecy
Everyone's guesses were right that the announcement today would be about gravitational waves. I hope none of those fkrs tries to surprise their spouse with presents. "You'll never guess what I got you, but it's edible and rhymes with moo-she-winner." :)
It is very exciting, even without the surprise. And how awesome that #LIGO is still trending on Twitter six hours later.
Just me, or does the name Kip Thorne sound like the lead male in a romantic bodice-ripper? Probably a piratical type. Why did he have to ruin things and say no time travel? And speaking of time-traveling, Albert Einstein had to be from the future, right? I'm guessing his glorious mane of hair helped somehow. I'm still working out the details, so I can take advantage with mine.
