explosion, but no gravitational waves..
It is under this title that, on January 16th, 2008,
Physicsworld.com learns us that
Ligo did not discover gravitational waves connected with the "Gamma
Ray Burst" GRB070201.
We shall appreciate all the exotic savour of this Jim Hough's comment
(Glasgow University) reported by
Either the source was not a coalescing binary or there is some exotic
situation where the gravitational waves disappear into another dimension.
Manifestly Jim Hough does not envisage the eventuality that the
Relativity would be faulted, for the first time.
On the absence of gravitational
waves, we can make several hypotheses:
The object ( GRB070201) was not a binary
object. (Another atypical case?)
The GRBs are not binary objects. (Why not.)
Ligo is not rather sensitive to discover them. (It
would amaze us, Americans know how to work)
The gravitational waves are not emitted in the
spectre of frequencies to which Ligo is sensitive. (Why not)
The gravitational waves were absorbed in the
intergalactic and interstellar environment. (Quite unlikely)
The gravitational waves dont exist. (In that case,
we forget the Relativity, we forget Big Bang)
We are keen to see the suite of the observations.
Feb.11.2016, CNRS NEWS told us that Gravitational Waves were Detected
On Sept 19, 2016, Arxiv publish, under the title "The
Radial Acceleration Relation in Rotationally Supported Galaxies"
(Stacy S. McGaugh, Federico Lelli, James M. Schombert), a study which
eliminates the hypothesis of dark matter as an
explanation for the abnormal rotations observed in galaxies. .
On Oct 13, 2016, the
Hubble Space Telescope reveals that Observable
Universe would contain 10 Times more galaxies than Previously
This is a conceptual shock!

On Oct 21, 2016, Nature publishes (in Open Access) :
Marginal evidence for cosmic acceleration from Type Ia
This publication, in fact, eliminates
the following assumptions :
- The expansion acceleration.
The Black Energy.
