>mfw americans spend billions of dolalrs to make a giant detector to prove that gravity can bend space when all they had to do was make some coffee and stir it
Cause the other are still upgrading.
VIRGO (Italy) should go online in 2017 and will perform more accurate measurements. Japan is working on one too, but I don't know what's the status.
In any case, this LIGO had two station which both detected something.
It's called centrifugal force, as a substance is moved in a circular direction the contents tend to stick to the walls of the container trying to push out following the direction of the movement. Gravity on the other hand is the pulling force that we have no idea how it works.
hmm let's see...model the universe as a non-newtonian fluid, put spherical particles that represent stars, add a massive particle that represents a black hole, give everything angular momentum proportional to its mass, add boundary bubble made of dark matter. BAM galaxy created.
