Re: Will nobody think of the tax payers?

Had to upvote this, because my eyebrows crawled way up my forehead as well.

Something that normally requires something of the magnitude of black holes smacking into each other and then sets of microscopic shifts and here there's one covering half a planet?

I though El Reg was oversimplifying for clickbaity reasons but reading the abstract in Nature that's precisely what they're saying: mountain gravity waves.

Anybody here able to explain what they mean? Same term for something different?
