It’s impossible to imagine where we would be scientifically had Einstein never come along and hadn’t developed his theory of general relativity. When we have scientists a century later still figuring out ways to physically prove what he proved on paper 100 years ago is just mind boggling.

Brian Greene is a theoretical physicist at Columbia University and he made an appearance on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert to announce the discovery of gravitational waves. He also does a great job of explaining just what the hell gravitational waves are and how they interact with our Universe.
