Tribute To Tom Petty (and Albert Einstein)

Tom Petty Free Fallin' (billboard photo)
Tom Petty was one of those music names like Bob Dylan, Free and Fleetwood Mac.  His passing is another sad empty seat in the old music school of the 1960s / 70s that saw so much talent from Pink Floyd to Ian Dury to Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young. 

Today's music is much more business-like, and  many will agree that its music is of much less quality and talent. 

Albert Einstein - Gravity Waves

Just before Tom Petty died his album Free Fallin' found some gravitational resonance in the world of science and the Nobel Prize.

The gravity waves predicted by Albert Einstein over a hundred years ago were observed by three scientists who were subsequently awarded the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics.  Rainer Weiss, Kip Thorne and Barry Barish shared the Physics prize for their work at the  Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO).
