If you're familiar with gravitational waves, skip the first two minutes of this video and enjoy the amazing details that follow. For example, when the two massive black holes collided, the energy released was greater than the energy being released by all the stars in the observable universe.

An interesting demonstration, including gravity waves as sound.
