What on Earth are gravitational waves?

This is somewhat a rant. The internet’s losing its mind over the discovery of gravitational waves. I normally try to stay on top of news, so I tried reading articles trending on the internet to at least get an abstract understanding of it. Not having blessed with a particularly science-friendly mind, they lost me a few paragraphs in. I even watched several videos of Physicists breaking it down for regular people. The result? You guessed right,  most of it went over my head. The only one that came close to unpacking it was this world-famous Physicist Lawrence Krauss on YouTube. But, it still left me with a ton of unanswered questions. Sigh, it’s bothersome when something major happens, especially scientific advances, and I can’t get my head around it.
