Watchu think ?

You probably already know this, but wait for peer review of results before forming too many opinions.
>>
>>7777399
Krauss was excited. Do you think it might be officially discovered ?

>PHYSICIST TWEETS RUMOR

op pls
>>
You know LIGO has false signal runs just to keep their researchers on their fucking toes, right?
And Lawrence Krauss is not the director of LIGO, so he has no idea if this is just another one of those runs that they've waited too long to reveal.
>>
probably not because gravitational waves likely dont exist
>>
There are rumors flying about in the community. I did my undergrad in a place that worked in LIGO and I know a few people in the collaboration. When this rumor came out a friend of mine in the collaboration (data analysis group) had heard nothing, however LIGO is a vast collaboration and tend to be rather cliquey. He is also very junior.
At the later the head of my astro group (totally unrelated to LIGO but we have a supercomputer) claimed we should look forward to an announcement the new year. It may be true but he is a pompous ass, I don't know if he would go as far as lying however.

The triggers are also set in such a way that about one spurious event comes up every month. A data injection however is quite unlikely given these rumors originated in the first 2 weeks of advanced LIGO.

In a way, this would be very depressing, if gravity waves did not exist then we would have to rethink the fundamentals of our understanding of the cosmos. That would energise physics like never before.

On the other hand, if I was an advanced civilisation, capable of feats of matter manipulation, I would send out signals using gravity waves as a form of 'morse code' knowing only civs of a certain advancement could receive them.
>>
>>7777931
what is the speed of such waves ?
>>
What could it mean if these are legit grav waves??

Also I hope there not because I think gravity is an illusion of something we haven't explained yet.

>>7777954
explaining is a meme in itself
>>
whats the difference between gravity and acceleration if there are no waves? Like how is it possible to say its a field.
>>
>>7778190
The field is spacetime

I'll wait till peer review studies confirm or deny this.

inb4 they get scooped.

What? C'mon dude, use your brain at least.

An expected result is hardly sensationalist bullshit. It's not confirmed, but don't be such a negative nancy. Doesn't make you look smart.

I think that science-by-press-release is the poorest form of science ever discovered.
