The Dawn of Gravitational Wave Astronomy.
Last year we were enthralled to hear the comical chirp of two black holes colliding when the LIGO team announce their first confirmed observation of gravitational waves.
Now we have more observations and are starting to use them to understand even more deeper secrets of the Universe, just as Galileo did when we first turned his meager optical telescope to the heavens and discovered moons around Jupiter, phases of Venus and sunspots.
