On September 14, 2015, in Livingston, LA and Hanford, WA, the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory detectors detected gravitational waves for the first time. After checking and rechecking their data and instruments (because, SCIENCE) the news was reported on February 11, 2016. Flat Earth enthusiasts conveniently ignore this bit of information as they continue to spew their crackpot theories of “It’s density, not gravity. They detected the density waves,” or “Water always finds its level so they detected the sonic waves as it bounced off the water level.” Gravity, all because it destroys your Bronze Age beliefs doesn’t stop it from being real.
