Fascinating – and kinda long – article about tracking gravitational waves:

"Virtually everything that is known about the universe has come to scientists by way of the electromagnetic spectrum. Four hundred years ago, Galileo began exploring the realm of visible light with his telescope. Since then, astronomers have pushed their instruments further. They have learned to see in radio waves and microwaves, in infrared and ultraviolet, in X-rays and gamma rays, revealing the birth of stars in the Carina Nebula and the eruption of geysers on Saturn’s eighth moon, pinpointing the center of the Milky Way and the locations of Earth-like planets around us. But more than ninety-five per cent of the universe remains imperceptible to traditional astronomy. Gravitational waves may not illuminate the so-called dark energy that is thought to make up the majority of that obscurity, but they will enable us to survey space and time as we never have before. “This is a completely new kind of telescope,” Reitze said. “And that means we have an entirely new kind of astronomy to explore.” If what we witnessed before was a silent movie, Levin said, gravitational waves turn our universe into a talkie."

Baby no 8 just born? That explains it! now I understand why #MickJagger & the Stones recorded a BLUES album (#Blue&Lonesome).
I can only imagine my reaction if at the age of 73 I found out I'll have to wake up in the middle of the night (for months or years) again to take care of the crying baby AGAIN! :)

Well, that "tomorrow" when he was planning on "going home" has finally arrived. Maestro went home. Sad, yes, but he seemed to be ready - as ready as a man can be.

"In October 2016, he released You Want It Darker, produced by his son Adam. Severe back issues made it difficult for Cohen to leave his home, so Adam placed a microphone on his dining room table and recorded him on a laptop. The album was met with rave reviews, though a New Yorker article timed to its release revealed that he was in very poor health. "I am ready to die," he said. "I hope it's not too uncomfortable. That's about it for me."
The singer-songwriter later clarified that he was "exaggerating." "I’ve always been into self-dramatization," Cohen said last month. "I intend to live forever."

Love the man! :)
Still hope to meet him some day.
And for now - he's left enough behind to feed me for a lifetime.
