The tides

So, about a year ago I fell into a wikipedia hole on my lunch break and discovered the mind-bendingly-awesome principal of Galactic Tides.

Today, while working at home with a cold, I found the condensed Minute Physics edition! For those of you who don’t feel inclined to spend 40 minutes on wikipedia reading about it, I give you this stellar explanation.

Pretty cool, huh?
