Cox presents a good overview of the quantum physics as he talks about the reason for the experiments at the CERN.

He also shares a beautiful "creation story" that pieces together all the beautiful learnings science has brought together in the past several decades.

Allan Adams: What the discovery of gravitational waves means

This news was a big deal recently and Adams tells us why.

Interestingly, we found the gravitational waves because we were exploring the universe in a completely different way. Instead of trying to "see" things like our telescopes do, we were "listening". This technique will allows us to discover new things about the universe that we would otherwise never be able to know.
