Examples

  • Those ripples can then pass through the space-time that Earth occupies, causing a slight distortion which Advanced LIGO is meant to pick up on.

    Gravitational Waves

  • No one has yet detected such a wave, but in 2001, physicists may catch such a wave at two elaborate systems of mirrors called LIGO, one in Louisiana and one in Washington state.

  • To claim the LIGO is a failure before it has reached its design sensitivity is just as ridiculous and ignorant as criticizing any other tool or piece of equipment for not functioning before it is properly calibrated.

  • “Our study does however show that such systems might exist, and those that have already evolved into a binary black hole might be detected by probes of gravitational waves, such as LIGO or Virgo.”

  • a relativist working on the project will be honest enough to call LIGO what it is.

  • There are a few wrinkles to this explanation: for example, the failure of instruments such as LIGO to spot gravitational waves despite general relativity indicating that accelerating cosmic bodies should be producing them.

  • Planck can't detect gravitational waves directly - that would come with space-based versions of experiments such as LIGO, the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory
