Gravitational Waves: What They Are & Why They Matter in 3 Minutes [Video]

With the recent announcement of the confirmation of Einstein’s prediction of gravitational waves, many people are wondering what they are and why it matters that they’ve been “discovered” – well, technically, the Advanced LIGO project has confirmed their existance as predicted by the theory of general relativity.

In any case, we found a great 3-minute video from the PHD Comics YouTube channel that explains what they are and why it matters that they’ve been detected. Enjoy!

Our gratitude to the Piled Higher and Deeper (PHD Comics) YouTube channel for creating this awesome video!
