Spring is finally and officially here! (I know the first day was yesterday, but since it's also my parents' anniversary today, I always think of 3/21 as the first day of spring.)
The main science news for the week is the discovery of gravitational waves that Einstein predicted. These waves provide additional support for the Big Bang theory.
