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.

LIGO opposition is unprecedented

November 30, 2018

Folks, how can LIGO dismiss all these dissident groups worldwide? Here are a few phrases that have been applied:

– You do not understand.
– It is too complicated for you.
– LIGO is a highly specialized science – not for the likes of you.

Then what? I can suggest a few more:

– I am a friend of the NSF Head and you are not!
– I have Senators and Congressmen my pocket.
– I have Dennis Overbye on my speed dial.

But now even I am out of ideas. Consider instead the simplest and the most natural answer: The dissidents are right.
