2019: The Year of LIGO Bacchanalia

December 31, 2018


Folks, it seems that the year 2019 has been selected for celebrating the LIGO discoveries around the world with a vengeance. They intend to drown out the dissident voices with this tremendous onslaught.

THE INDIAN BACCHANALIA

In January, Ligonauts from around the world will gather in a five-star luxury resort called Dukes Retreat in Maharastra (“Experience a New Dimension of Comfort and Class”). Stonewall Reitze will be there to give assurances that all is well with LIGO. They will celebrate “The Era of Ligo India”. It is a little disconcerting terminology, considering that all there is of LIGO India is a concrete marker post out in the boonies. Three years after the Government gave resounding approval to LIGO , there is no sign of any caterpillars or bulldozers on the ground. There is only happy talk about LIGO India. Seasons turn, shrubs grow, shrubs dry – that’s about all that is happening in LIGO India’s chosen site.

But I hasten to add that the Indian Government, to its credit, is not funding this lifestyle of the celebrity academics. A private charitable organization called Tata Trust will happily pick up the tab at the five-star luxury resort.

THE SWISS BACCHANALIA

Starmus V festival will be held at the end of June in Zurich. It is a ticket event. They promise to put 12 Nobel Laureates on their stage for you. Of these 6 are cosmology’s scam discoverers. Rock stars, Nobelists and astronauts will regale the audience. Ol’ Kippy Boy will discuss the universe. There will also be awarded the Stephen Hawking Medal for science communication. Last year’s medalist was Neil deGrasse Tyson! This year’s winner will have his photo right next to Tyson’s. What an honor!

But I hasten to add that forces of the good are also in evidence here. Fraud-feting Starmus V was announced to be celebrated in a big way in Bern. But after the local collaborators vetted Starmus, they booted this shady business clear out of Bern. Read all about this here. (Wait till the “translate” tab appears in the upper right hand corner.)

THE GERMAN BACCHANALIA

The 69th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting will take place in early July. Its theme is physics, and the organizers have deliberately chosen to emphasize cosmology (meaning essentially LIGO). The ten cosmology Nobelists (Penzias, Wilson, Mather, Smoot, Perlmutter, Schmidt, Riess, Thorne, Weiss, Barish) all got the Prize for scam/fraud discoveries. Many of them will be in Lindau to inspire select young talent from around the world. In fact, the ones that will attend Starmus will just have enough time to hop over from Zurich to Lindau.

The Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings have the approval of the Nobel Foundation.

If you still do not see that your scientific civilization is being systematically and rapidly dismantled by powerful organized forces, the year 2019 will be the year the pod trucks will roll into your town and secretly place a pod in your cellar. All you have to do is fall asleep.

What is going on in the world is beyond belief. Why responsible people are not acting is beyond imagination.

New footnote on an old graphic

December 28, 2018


For reasons unrelated to science, two of the three people in the above graphic will not be promoting LIGO fraud anymore. One of them is minus a job that paid $265,000 a year. The other has contract worth millions of dollars in jeopardy.

LIGO output can contain no gravitational wave signal

December 14, 2018

I. PHYSICS-WISE

LIGO physics is altogether misconceived because of lack of basic knowledge of wave behavior. It is exactly the same lack of knowledge I analyzed in the case of the COBE satellite. Rainer Weiss was the leader there.

II. OPERATION-WISE

The LIGO operation – as described and prescribed by the Ligonauts – cannot lead to a GW signal at the detector output, even if LIGO were otherwise a sound instrument (which it is not.)

III. ENGINEERING-WISE

LIGO hardly works according to its working principle (invisible entanglement of the mirror motions) prescribed by the Ligonauts (B Mode in the following graphic.) Instead, its signal all comes from A Mode, and also through direct coupling of electromagnetic disturbances to the optoelectronic detector. Electromagnetic disturbance can penetrate enough through the LIGO steel tube to dominate LIGO response. The A Mode LIGO signal may contain many things (e.g. Schumann resonances, solar activity, geomagnetic storms, nearby lightning strikes etc.), but not GW.
