Grave Doubts Over Ligos Discovery Of Gravitational Waves
He and his team later got hold of the underlying data the LIGO researchers had published and did a calculation. They checked and checked again. But still they found that the residual noise in the Hanford and Livingston detectors had characteristics in common. “We came to a conclusion that was very disturbing,” says Jackson. “They didn’t separate signal from noise.”
It would have been nice in a way to have a definite answer re: gravitational waves, but the lack thereof has profound implications for the future of gravity research.
That's the first time I've seen criticism against LIGO. But then again, I can't read every technical journal out there. I have to admit that I was a tiny bit suspicious at the beginning about the announcement...so quickly after it came online. So when I didn't hear anything I forgot about it. Now maybe I have to think my "hunch" might not have been just a feeling. We shall see.
