Question of the day

Feb 3, 2016

Our last question asked: On Thursday, scientists confirmed long-anticipated rumors that they had finally detected gravitational waves. But despite an embargo placed on the information until an appointed time, that news was broken early because a picture of what was mistakenly shared? A twitpic of a celebratory cake that read "Here's to the first direct detection of gravitational waves!"

Congrats to Ames Alexander of the Charlotte Observer for being the very first to get that right! Honorable mentions go out to these lovely people for also getting it right: Carrie Gray (who adds "Shoutout to @Columbia astrophysicists who worked on gravitational waves discovery!"), Mark Gibbs (who quips "@erinleeryan didn't appreciate the gravity of the announcement"), Lindsay CiullaMarty RayJo Anne McCuskerBecky YerakRobin Tierney (who admits "I want to be NASA secretary in charge of cakes"), Ken Walker and Ron Casalotti (who managed to fit two puns in one by tweeting "The gravity of the situation really takes the cake").
