Flawed second LIGO gravitational wave discovery
In a previous post I listed the many problems associated with the LIGO team’s claim of having made the first direct observation of gravitational waves in history. Now they have released a second claim that makes all but one of the problems with the initial claim seem irrelevant. That problem is the methodology used to try to recover a signal from what is essentially unidentified and random background noise. This “mystery noise” has continued to […]
Problems with the LIGO gravitational wave discovery
It’s been over a month since the announcement by the LIGO team that they made the first ever direct observation of gravitational waves in history. The following is a concise list of problems associated with this claim, much of which has been summarized from my original post a couple of weeks ago. ~~~~~ Non-repeatability and non-verifiability The Advanced LIGO experiment did not follow the scientific method, one of the fundamental tenants of which is that […]
It’s been over two weeks since the big announcement concerning the alleged discovery of gravitational waves by the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO). Although a few outliers have since pushed back, for the most part this “discovery” has been accepted unquestioningly by the vast majority of the scientific community and media outlets. I would like to begin by stating that I personally believe that gravitational waves could exist. So far all of Einstein’s predictions have […]
