Dumbing UP! A serious question from a serious amateur.


I want to ask about exoplanets. I have made a video that fully explains why I have this problem - I don't believe that they have found ANY, never mind the hundreds that they claim.

Gravitational Wave Telescope

It was about forty six years after the discovery of radio waves that we saw the first radio telescopes. So, how long before we get a Gravitational Wave Telescope? More importantly, at fifty five, will I be around to see it!
