Cosmic Vibrations Felt From Black-Hole Merger 3 Billion Light-Years Away

Astronomers said Thursday that they had felt space-time vibrations known as gravitational waves from the merger of a pair of mammoth black holes resulting in a pit of infinitely deep darkness weighing as much as 49 suns, some 3 billion light-years from here.

This is the third black-hole smashup that astronomers have detected since they started keeping watch on the cosmos back in September 2015, with LIGO, the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory. All of them are more massive than the black holes that astronomers had previously identified as the remnants of dead stars.

In less than two short years, the observatory has wrought twin revolutions. It validated Einstein’s longstanding prediction that space-time can shake like a bowlful of jelly when massive objects swing their weight around, and it has put astronomers on intimate terms with the most extreme objects in his cosmic zoo and the ones so far doing the shaking: massive black holes.

I know some of you track this gravitational wave stuff. So sharing for you!

Once again, scientists are missing some important and fundamental things about their theory, their instrument and it's results.

Here's the problem with gravitational waves: Gravitational Waves by Wallace Thornhill 

This article goes into more depth as to why the LIGO instrument is a big fail and the scientists fail even harder: Gravitational Waves or Electric Universe Waves?
