    Gravitational waves seem to be the scientific ‘in-thing’ nowadays, not withstanding black holes, wormholes, gamma ray bursts, coronal mass ejections and other related astronomical ‘mega-events’. Add to this asteroids, meteorites, comets and self-inflicted space junk and it’s quite surprising we’re all still around!  It’s only because of our resilient atmosphere and that hard-working magnet at the Earth’s core that our little blue planet continues to surf the vast vacuum of space relatively unscathed.  Anyway, back to gravity waves, and there seems to be a lot of them about, according to LIGO, our new gravity wave cruncher.  You can’t see them, hear them or feel them and yet they’re all around us, squeezing and stretching everything, including us and this space-time we live in.  Quite a thought.  This fine-art image is my visual interpretation of these events.  That little back dot represents the black hole throwing out shells of energy and matter, carried along on these waves, not in, but of space-time.  It all seems so random, but underneath all that there lies a deliberate and rigorous structure.  Just like a Jackson Pollock action painting.  Now he would definitely have approved of gravitational waves!
