Thanks Steve for your always lucid explanations. I love the LIGO instrument. What I am struggling with is how this changes the world. What are the implications? Does it support the multiverse, say anything about string theory, ... ? I am hopelessly naive on this.


What I should have said in the first comment is “How does it change our world view?”
Physics in my view is getting increasingly metaphysical. Very bizarre but fascinating stuff.
