    Kudos on the writers, they know their spacetime lingo!

    A lot of misinformation here. Theory of Relativity has been accepted by the scientific community for decades; we have known that black holes existed for years; and this was not "the biggest physics discovery in decades".

      As someone who studies astrophysics, I should let you know that you're simply not listening to the video. The Theory of Relativity has been accepted for decades; however, this video never said it hasn't been accepted. The news is that it has been finally proven. Also, this video is quite correct in saying that this event was our first certain observation of a black hole. We knew about them from quasars, gravitational lensing, etc; however. we had not had an experience like this before.

    You guys did a spot on job of summing up the discovery. As an astrophysics major and a huge RT fan, this video made me very happy.

    The nerd in me loves this. But I feel like I'll need hours of Neil Degrasse Tyson explaining it to me before I finally get it...

    What an outstanding job! The graphics and explanation was just right for a good understanding.

    I'm not sure about the theory of Relativity being "confirmed" though. It's just still a theory not a law, overall.

      No, no, no.

      No.

      There is no such thing as a "Law" of science - while several Theories are known as Laws for historical reasons, they all have the same standing as any Theory - all measurable evidence supports it, and they cannot be simplified any further (string theory remains a hypothesis, because there is no measurable evidence that supports it that does not also support the Standard Model of Quantum Chromodynamics).

      Hypothesis is the scientific term for anything that is just a "We think that..." that can't be directly and exclusively, supported by evidence.

      Having done a way too many years in chemistry I can assure you "laws" definitely exist in science. The term law is used to explain fundamental characteristics that a system can exist or is forbidden from existing in eg "the 4 laws of thermodynamics"... Basically chemistry loves laws, physics and biology love theories, welcome to science :)

    YAS MY ASTRONOMY PROFESSOR WAS SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS LAST SEMESTER AND also you guys did an amazing job covering the subject!!!

    It's reasons like this that I'm glad to be doing astrophysics

    Hey a kolache is ethereal lightness when hot and makes a black hole look feathery when eaten cold and in your belly. I think I have the last one I ate 12 years ago still sitting in there.


    On LIGO really decent job there, well done you two. I really would like to "KNOW" who wrote this episode so I can say well done to them also.

    Fun fact: Interstellar's black hole is actually an accurate simulation and the scientist, Kip Thorne, behind the conception of the film helped found LIGO who made this discovery!
