POST-NOBEL COMMENTS ON INDIA LIGO

October 8, 2017


I am not a citizen of India, and so that nation investing in fraud science is no skin off my nose. As a person of Indian origin, I tried to give the Indian scientific establishment some direction and inject some sense into them.

Now with the Nobel Prize, they have been fully empowered to proceed, and they are proceeding. Even more moneys than they originally asked for are being sought.

For me, the LIGO Nobel Prize changes absolutely nothing in my scientific position on LIGO. That position has been recorded for posterity. The LIGO instrument is a total piece of crap – good only for scrap metal.

And there will be no change in this position if there emerge reports of neutron star merger, with confirmatory electromagnetic signature. LIGO cannot detect gravitational wave any more than a dowsing rod can detect water.

So I will have nothing further to say on the subject of installation of LIGO in India.

THE DIABOLIC CON OF WEISS AND THORNE

October 8, 2017


Of the many expansive scientific lies upon which LIGO is built, perhaps the most effective one for them is that (they say in their website) LIGO is blind to electromagnetic (EM) signals. LIGO senses only mechanical vibrations.

It is in fact EM that LIGO sees most readily. Here is how it works: An EM disturbance is incident on LIGO steel tubes. Since the walls of the tube are thin, this disturbance penetrates through and hits the LIGO innards, in which electric currents are generated. However, there is the Earth’s static magnetic field. Therefore the innards are set in mechanical vibration (following that old motor principle). And such mechanical vibrations are precisely what LIGO is designed to detect.

It seems that the Ligonauts suffer from clinical amnesia about the Earth’s magnetic field, which is THE most crucial factor for their instrument.

Additionally, the km-scale LIGO tubes are especially efficient attractors of geomagnetic disturbances.

Thus, quite unintentionally, LIGO is a fine detector of geomagnetic disturbances, and nothing else.

All this I have explained in this blog within days after the first LIGO detection was announced. They are also in my book.

So you can see that simultaneous observation of a signal at two or three stations does not make a case for gravitational wave. Chirp, ringdown etc – if they are truly present in the data – are related to instrument response upon being actuated by a geomagnetic disturbance. Everything is terrestrial. There is no cause here to invoke extraterrestrial phenomena unless there is some pressing need to come up with grandiose discoveries.

One of the important conclusions that follows is that nothing the Ligonauts say, or explain should be believed. If anyone is interested in assessing anything about LIGO, they have to go completely outside the physics establishment, and ask some group that this establishment cannot “get to.” The establishment can no longer be trusted – not for scientific competence nor for honesty.
