Here's a video to help you understand the big physics news this week


You may have noticed that physicists are very, very excited this week. In fact everyone involved in science on any level seems to have a party hat on. However, if you are not a physicist or don't know much about science, you may be a little hazy on why everyone is so excited and just why gravitational waves are so important.

So long as you have a rudimentary understanding of the nature of the universe and the big bang theory, the video below from Nature should help clear things up a bit.

After that, if you're still interested, you might want to read this interview with John Kovac (who is probably in line for a Nobel Prize for his work on this).
