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?

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?  Why are they dimissing Feynman, Newton, Galileo, Einstein et al.? Newton: The best and safest method […]

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 […]
