David Reitze, executive director of the LIGO Laboratory, took the podium at the National Press Building in Washington, DC, this morning, and said the words we’ve all been waiting on tenterhooks to hear: “We have discovered gravitational waves.” And a packed auditorium in Caltech’s Cahill building in Pasadena—where…
YouTube’s attempt to break into the original content game isn’t anything revolutionary. In fact, you could say that they’re late to the party Hulu, Amazon, and Netflix are throwing. And in some desperate attempt to fit in, they’ve taken view counts off of YouTube Red shows.
Ripples in the fabric of spacetime, you say? Gabriela González, a professor of physics and astronomy at Louisiana State University and spokesperson for the Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory (LIGO), was wearing a very interesting garment at the National Press Center today, where gleeful physicists…

We got a brand new Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer out of nowhere this morning. Shock of shocks, it’s actually made up almost entirely new footage! It’s got Batman throwing down! Superman in the tub! Wonder Woman finally speaking a line! But there’s much, much more—so we’ve examined every single shot to see…
