Thank you. That is actually a pretty big deal, one of the last confirmations of relativity predictions. This experimental apparatus and design is at once massive and powerful, and delicate and elegant. They actually picked up the signal last September, but only announced today because it took months to analyze and confirm the data.

In theory, this has created a whole new kind of observation tool. Detecting gravitational waves could allow us to "see" distant events that are not observable in any other way we know of. We have light telescopes, and then radio telescopes, and now we can have gravity telescopes.

IT'S OFFICIAL: Gravitational waves have been detected, Einstein was right - ScienceAlert

But gravity is just a theory!! :p

Exciting stuff. Especially when it comes to anything that advances the understanding of black holes and dark matter.

OK, so now that that issue is behind us can someone please start working on teleportation?

Well, I'm sitting here in my cubicle having a conversation with moreons who are scattered around the planet, will that do for now??

I would like to teleport myself and my bike someplace warm this weekend.

The multiverse theory says that every possibility for any given situation, will/is/has happened in another parallel universe.

So, we are all doing other things elsewhere at the moment. Teleportation might not be possible, but it's also not necessary, if you buy that.

Now, excuse me while I go teleport myself through the alternate universe that is the subway system.

The problem is that the "multiverse theory" is nonsense. It's not even a theory. The kind of "physicists" who came up with that crap should be ashamed of themselves.

What would we get if we combined 2 moreons with 1 newbtron?

That was fast... pissed on the fire before we could even toast marshmallows.

Dimoreon nooboxamide!

Moreon.

Of course this means, Interstellar could totally happen.
With the black hole bookshelves and everything?

There could be another parallel universe where the "multiverse theory" is not nonsense.

Think about it.

If I cant have teleportation I will settle for flying cars and a robot names Rosie

I think Christine thought up the subway funny then had to go work it into the OP subject.
