The world of astronomy is celebrating a discovery most of the rest of us will have trouble understanding. But it's said to provide a whole new way of looking at the universe -- and even listening to it.

One astronomer says, "the skies will never be the same" after today's announcement that science has finally detected the gravitational waves predicted by Albert Einstein 100 years ago. We hear more from astrophysicist Ian O'Neill, a Space Science Producer for Discovery News, and Nickie Twilley, a contributing writer for the New Yorker and co-host of Gastropod, a podcast about food.
