APOD at 2:55 am this morning. They're teasing us! But I think it's also a tell – an announcement of failure from LIGO could hardly be construed as “exciting”, but success certainly would. On this flimsy premise, I'm assuming that LIGO is going to announce that they have conclusively observed gravitational waves.
For those of you who aren't followers of physics and cosmology discoveries :)... This is a big deal, confirmation of a theory that originated with Einstein that has stood unproven for decades, despite many, many previous attempts to do so. Physicists have spent their entire career trying – and failing – to actually observe gravitational waves...
