According to the Internet, Gravitational waves 'are distortions in the fabric of space and time'. So does that mean there really could be parallel universes? And wouldn't that also mean that you could, in theory...
... travel back in time? Or forward in time? It kind of blows my mind to think of time having a ripple effect, but that's what these waves are - space ripples. How is space time different from regular time? What does this mean for us on Earth? I could spend hours reading about this stuff, but I'd love some suggestions about a book on this topic.

“These waves are spacetime ripples and yes, they do exist.”
According to good ol' Science Daily, wave-particle duality is the idea that light and matter both have properties of waves and particles. There was recently a flaw discovered in this theory but it was shut down.
I'm a long time fan of the television show The Big Bang Theory and I’ve always wondered what their process was for getting the science right. I just finished reading a fascinating article on NPR about how the show has its own science consultant! His name is David Saltzberg and he is a physics professor at UCLA.
