The restored Leviathan of Parsonstown and rainbow. The telescope was built by William Parsons, 3rd Earl of Rosse. It has an aperture of 72 in (1.8 m) and was the largest in the world from 1845 until the construction of the 100-inch (2.5 m) Hooker Telescope on Mt Wilson in 1917.

But no pots of gold at the end of the rainbow.

Gravitational waves were big news in 2016. And news again last year when Nobel Prizes were awarded for their detection. Gravitational waves are a prediction from Einstein's Theory of General Relativity which was published in 1915. In 2015 they were finally detected. And what are gravitational waves?
