These are the top stories of the week. Einstein proven right, Twitter timeline controversy, and everything else you need to know. According to a study just published in a journal called Physical Review Letters, gravitational waves have been detected for the first time. Gravitational waves were predicted by Einstein's Theory of General Relativity. But this is the first Time. They would directly detect it. Now what are they? They're the byproduct of two black holes billions of light years from earth colliding. When they collided they produced these energy ripples through space. Now what does this mean? Speaking to the BBC, Professor Bernard Schutz said, with gravitational waves, We do expect eventually to see the Big Bang itself. Holy [BLEEP]. Twitter is offering its users the option of a different timeline. The regular way is seeing tweets in chronological order. The new way would put more important tweets at the top of your timeline. Don't fear, this is an opt-in thing. To change your timeline, go to your Twitter settings Then scroll to the content section, then to the Timeline option. You can check the box to show the best Tweets first. Anybody running Windows, remember to update.

Brian Fuller was named as the show runner for the new Star Trek TV series. Fuller was behind Dead Like Me and has written fro Deep Space Nine and Voyager.
