Thats No Moon!

Read this the other day which i thought was pretty cool.

Its about a collaboration between NASA and the European Space Agency to send three spacecraft into orbit of the sun to prove the existence of 'Gravitational Waves' predicted in Einsteins theory of relativity. Apparently it will be the largest scientific instrument ever built.

Einstein's theory of general relativity predicted that when large  objects such    as black holes collide, ripples in space and time flow outwards. These     ripples are called gravitational waves. Fun stuff.

It just seems to remind me of 'Thats No Moon'. You know what i'm saying right?...Right?
