    You are most welcome, Sir. Seems that that is the implication here about the wobbles. I wobble from time to time myself.

    Was that wobble in the past or future???

    As strange as our Universe is, I would have to say the answer could be both.

    Hmm...Gravity behaves like blobs (the mass) of merging bloblets. The surrounding field seems laminar, and follows the contour of the blobs. The field weakens proportionally with distance from the blob(s). I can't tell from the article where they expect to see turbulent effects.

    Me neither, Seeker. However, it will be fun to watch their progress.
