LOL LIGO! If the signal is “buried in detector noise,” how can LIGO be sure that the signal represents the inspiral of a black hole merger? LOL LIGO!

LOL LIGO! If the signal is “buried in detector noise,” how can LIGO be sure that the signal represents the inspiral of a black hole merger? LOL LIGO! Nanoweek reports: http://www.nanowerk.com/news2/space/newsid=43691.php The event was much weaker than the first detection on September 14 and was buried in the detector noise. A so-called “matched-filter” search was essential […]

LOL LIGO! Will Sean Carrol and Richard Dawid become the new face of LIGO and physics? Why is the LIGO team associating itself with Sean “science need not be empirical” Carol and Richard “non-empirical confirmation of theories is the future” Dawid instead of Einstein, Newton, Galileo, and Feynman?

LIGO DETECTS SECOND GRAVITATIONAL WAVE! LOL LIGO! Is LIGO’s 2nd detection just noise? LIGO DETECTS ANOTHER BLACK HOLE MERGER! LIGO BAGS NEW BLACK HOLE! LIGO DETECTS GRAVITAIONAL WAVE!

Is LIGO’s 2nd detection of gravitational waves mostly just noise?  Why is the data so very different (and seemingly noiseier) from the first set of data from a supposedly similar black hole merger event? LOL LIGO! BREAKING LIGO NEWS! LIGO DETECTS MORE GRAVITATIONAL WAVES! LIGO DETECTS ANOTHER BLACK HOLE! LIGO BAGS NEW BLACK HOLE! LIGO […]

LOL LIGO! Was it only “black hole mimickers” you detected?

LOL LIGO!  Was it only “black hole mimickers” you detected? http://physics.aps.org/synopsis-for/10.1103/PhysRevLett.116.171101 reports, Synopsis: Did Black Hole “Mimickers” Produce LIGO Signal? April 27, 2016 Recently detected gravitational waves might not be a signature of black holes but of other massive objects that lack an event horizon. . . . In September 2015, the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO) […]

LOL LIGO! What motivated LIGO’s solitary detection? “The field needs the validation.” LOL LIGO! Why not wait for two or three signals?

What motivated LIGO’s solitary detection? “The field needs the validation.” LOL LIGO! Why not wait for two or three signals?  Oh wait, with billions of dollars on the line, waiting for confirmation or reproducible results is silly silly silly!

LOL MORE LIGO HYPE! “Faint gravitational waves could soon be on LIGO’s radar,” which is a good thing, as more prominent signals are lacking!!

LOL LIGO!  “Faint gravitational waves could soon be on LIGO’s radar,” which is a good thing, as more prominent signals are lacking!! Emily Conover at Sciencenews.org reports: Faint gravitational waves could soon be on LIGO’s radar New analysis finds better prospects for spotting weak ripples from distant black hole mergers Having utterly failed to find more […]
