WOLFGANG ENGELHARDT’S LETTER OPPOSING 2017 NOBEL PRIZE FOR LIGO

January 31, 2017


Today is the Nobel Prize 2017 nomination deadline. It is certain that powerful LIGO nominations are in – powerfully written recommendations from powerful physicists.

What do we have to counteract these nominations? Professor Wolfgang Engelhardt has renewed and updated this year his past year’s referral to the Physics Nobel Committee:

Dear Professor Mårtensson,

you are certainly aware of the Open Letter to the Nobel Committee for Physics 2016. Unfortunately, the uncertainties concerning the LIGO experiment have not been removed during the past year. On the contrary, neither an event of similar magnitude as GW150914 was detected, nor was the calibration paper arXiv:1602.03838v1 [gr-qc] 11 Feb 2016 published in a peer reviewed journal. The co-authors Prof. Bruce Allen and Prof. Karsten Danzmann do not even list this e-print among their publications in ResearchGate, although this report was cited in reference [63] of PRL 116, 061102 (2016) as an integral part of the ‘discovery’. There is no doubt, without proving experimentally LIGO’s ability to measure 10 oscillations of heavy mirrors with an amplitude of one thousandth of a proton radius within 200 milliseconds as allegedly induced by GW150914 one cannot claim any discovery.

Nevertheless, some authors of the ‘discovery paper’ PRL 116, 061102 (2016) express in the media their expectation that LIGO must be awarded a Nobel Prize in 2017. I am sure, your Committee will not comply with these unfounded and unreasonable requests until a solid experimental proof of a real discovery of the hypothetical gravitational waves has been published.

Yours sincerely,
Wolfgang Engelhardt

This is a very good step. Think about it: The Nobel Committee and their consultants may not be reading about the Internet dissidence. So, without such a referral sent directly to the Committee, they may never even know that there is anything the matter with the LIGO discovery.

Over spring and summer and going into fall, look for the LIGO gang “servicing” the Nobel nomination: Great presence and posturing in the media, accompanied perhaps by announcement of a few more confirmatory discoveries. They will also continue to build up the larger-than-life LIGO heroes. And of course the great physics commentariat will do its part in the campaign.

THIS ACCELERATING UNIVERSE WEIRDORAMA

November 7, 2016

Recently a group of scientists has claimed that the discovery (2011 Nobel Prize for physics) that the expansion of the universe is accelerating is not valid. Other scientists are opposing this new finding. The former group claims to have done better statistics with a larger sample base.

This is a totally superfluous exercise. It is first of all beating a dead horse. But worse yet, it is creating somehow the impression that may be the horse is actually not dead, and needs to be shot. And if instead of shooting the horse the scientists shoot themselves in the foot, the net impression that will remain is that the horse is alive.

The discovery was and is totally bogus for science (not statistics) reasons I explained here in this blog site back in 2011, and later in my book The Falsifiers of the Universe. To try to disprove that false discovery with new statistics is like raising holy hell to try to dissolve the USSR.

As I have said before, this scientific establishment has gone to seeds.

There is a Bengali proverb: What do idle folks do? They mix together wheat and chaff, and separate them again.

LORD HAVE MERCY!

LIGO will never receive a Nobel Prize, period.

October 10, 2016

Based on one simple, single, solitary assumption:

The Nobel Prize will not shoot itself in the foot again,

an assumption I think is reasonable, here is my prediction in perpetuity:

LIGO discoveries will never receive a Nobel Prize.

This also means that

The Kavli Prize, the Gruber Prize, the Shaw Prize and the Breakthrough Prize are left holding the bag.

LIGO: Wolfgang Engelhardt’s Letter to Nobel Committee

July 22, 2016

Folks, I had read authoritative media reports that LIGO Nobel Prize would be awarded in 2017 (as the 2016 nomination deadline was missed.) However, I have seen comments to the effect that it is going to be this fall. It is possible that the Nobel Committee will make an exception and waive its own nomination deadline. Other prizes have done that to make the award to LIGO this year.

A LIGO dissident, Wolfgang W. Engelhardt, a physicist retired from the Max-Planck-Institut für Plasmaphysik, had been digging into LIGO science. He developed some most pertinent questions and dutifully submitted them to LIGO. He was insulted:

The questions asked were not answered. Instead the addressee, Prof. Karsten Danzmann, Director at the Albert Einstein Institute and co-author of the publication of the LIGO Experiment, attacked the person of Dr. Wolfgang Engelhardt in an unacceptable way, with insults and defamation. He also announced that he would make no further comment on the LIGO Experiment (Document 16 in the above-linked citizens’ enquiry).

Professor Engelhardt has submitted the following letter to the Nobel Committee for 2016:

Open Letter To The Nobel Committee For Physics 2016

Published on July 1, 2016

Written by Wolfgang Engelhardt

To Professor Olle Inganäs (chaiman),

Dear Professor Inganäs,

On Feb. 11, 2016 the LIGO-team published the paper PRL 116, 061102 (2016): Observation of Gravitational Waves from a Binary Black Hole Merger. The experimental proof for the existence of a gravitational wave was announced: Mirrors of 40 kg had been displaced by 10-18 m during fractions of a second as measured with a Michelson-interferometer with 4 km arm length resulting in a strain of 10-21.

Scaling up these data by a factor of 1013 a relative accuracy must have been achieved by a hair’s breadth (10 microns) in relation to the distance to the next fixed star (4 light-years). This is by a factor of 1 Million better than the relative Mössbauer accuracy of 10-15 obtained so far.

Indeed, Rudolf Mössbauer was awarded the Nobel Prize for physics in 1961 for this achievement. In order to substantiate this extraordinary claim, it is absolutely necessary to demonstrate experimentally LIGO’s ability to measure a displacement of 10-18 m that is one thousandth of a proton radius. The reader is assured that the calibration of the system can be achieved by moving the mirrors by such a tiny distance with radiation pressure: “The detector output is calibrated in strain by measuring its response to test mass motion induced by photon pressure from a modulated calibration laser beam [63].” Ref. [63] is an unpublished e-print describing the calibration method by radiation pressure.

Formula (10) gives the calculable connection between displacement and the radiation power of an auxiliary laser shining on the mirror. Unfortunately no data are given as to the laser power, wave form, number of oscillations in order to compare with the documented effect that was exerted on the mirrors by the wave GW150914, as displayed in the “discovery paper”.

An enquiry with the Albert Einstein Institut revealed that such data do not exist. Prof. Karsten Danzmann declared that the calibration procedure is much more complicated than could be expected from the announcement in the discovery paper (http://www.kritikrelativitaetstheorie.de/Anhaenge/Anfrage%20LIGO-Experiment.pdf , document 13).

In order to understand it, one would need to study lengthy technical documents such as arXiv:1007.3973v1 [gr-qc] 22 Jul 2010 which, however, does not present either a calibration curve “mirror displacement versus laser power”. In view of this statement one must conclude that an experimental proof for the claimed accuracy of the system does not exist, certainly none which is intelligible and could be accepted by the scientific public.

It would be easy to move the mirrors by radiation pressure similarly as the gravitational wave did on 15-09-14 , but no data have been published since then that would document this calibration measurement. In view of Prof. Danzmann’s statement one must suspect that LIGO was not calibrated as announced in the discovery paper with the consequence that the claim having detected a gravitational wave is not substantiated experimentally.

It is quite possible that GW150914 was a test signal injected into the system before the science run started. The second “discovery” GW151226 shows a very weak signal that is hardly discernable in the noise as admitted by the authors themselves.

In the early seventies there was a claim by Joe Weber having detected gravitational waves. Repetitions of his measurements by several groups came up with null results. Weber was not awarded a Nobel Prize, a wise decision by the Committee. In the present instance it is not easily possible to repeat independent experiments with interferometers of 4 km arm length.

One should insist, however, that the LIGO-group carries out the calibration as described in their discovery paper and publishes the results. Such data were included in the previous Technical Document LIGO-T030266-00 – D 9/22/03 (https://dcc.ligo.org/public/0027/T030266/000/T030266-00.pdf ) where much higher laser power was applied to achieve measurable displacements. Hence, it is surprising to notice that direct calibration data were not included in Ref. [63] on this far more auspicious occasion. As more events like GW150914 are expected, one should wait and see whether they materialize.

With my best regards,

Wolfgang Engelhardt

LINDAU NOBEL 2016: Fraud science and scam science

June 23, 2016


In keeping with their fine tradition, the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting in physics is once again helping entrench scam science and fraud science. They are doing so in front of the finest young talent they have selected from around the world. Clearly, the home countries of these young people, the host country Germany, the physics establishment worldwide, the Nobel Foundation whose name gives these meetings stature, and a host of other entities associated with this are all OK with this. These young people will then go unto the world and propagate the lies

This is the abyss of falsification they have dragged your scientific civilization down to. The world has never witnessed such corruption in such high places. They are degrading us all so cleverly that no one notices anymore that anything is amiss.

The past fraudsters are operating with impunity and are helping out new fraudsters. Past scammers are helping out the newbies.

LIGO discovery is a scam, and Smoot has the capacity to understand that scam. Yet he is helping entrench that scam. It makes sense because he is himself a part of Big Bang fraud.

GEORGE SMOOT
Gravitational Waves, Merging Black Holes

ABSTRACT
The recent detection by a LIGO collaboration of gravitational waves from merging binary pair of 30-solar mass black holes is culmination of long efforts.
The trek taken by many individuals in the discovery of gravitational waves is quite stunning and this talk recounts the journey in finding those waves. Since the origin of the idea in the early twentieth century, Einstein predicted them first one hundred years ago in 1916 but that was confused and the theoretical and experimental blunders continued for some time. Efforts for their detection and subsequent discovery also have a long history and include similar confusions. However, we have great confidence in these new results, even though they provide a number of surprises. Most of all they are a stunning confirmation of General Relativity.

Big Bang is the greatest science fraud in human history – and Brian Schmidt is a part of it.

BRIAN SCHMIDT
State of the Universe

ABSTRACT
13.8 Billion years ago, something happened – the Big Bang – which set in motion our expanding Universe. Through the systematic process of science, humanity has managed in a very short time to piece together a comprehensive story of our Universe. In 2016 the vital statistics of the universe – its composition, size, density, shape, and age – are known to remarkable accuracy. But the job is nowhere near done. In my lecture, I will discuss what we know, and what we don’t know about the Universe, and try to guess likely new areas for discovery in the years and decades to come.
