Is this astronomy course without physics similar to your Egyptology without reality, freebill?

It's more like his posting without thinking.

Also, without answering questions. Or providing sufficient information so anyone knows what he's trying to say.

I'm guessing that the instruments can tell us where and when 2 black holes collided, but I don't get how this new tool can tell us anything more than that.

Oh well. I can only hope the utility of this discovery will make itself clear as time progresses at whatever rate is warranted. Meanwhile, sea levels continue to rise.


Well, it's not only told us where and when they collided, but also that they exist in the first place. This is the first time black holes have been directly detected. The applications of listening to gravity waves are the same as those for light waves - you can detect very distant objects and events. light waves can be blocked. Apparently, gravity waves can't - so we can look much, much further away and, therefore, much longer ago.


:D yeah poddlililidooo; your understanding of spacetime and blackholes is like physics with a little bit of egyptology, oceanography, geology, and god knows whatnot :D

no, this is not the first time blackholes directly detected, because the incident involves the merge of two blackholes, it's in the same category as gravitational lens

What is the statistical significance of this result over time? Ignoring the one off result.

I'm not holding my breath. All the pop sci cosmologists and scientists have been doing the rounds on TV to proclaim how amazing this is. Meh.

I am presuming the funding for this experiment is roughly on par with the amount of media attention is has garnered.

Yeah freeblyweebly; your understanding of anything is like fairy tales with a bit of paranoia, delusions of grandeur, sheer stupidity and Ra knows sweet FA.

Yes, this is the first time a black hole has been directly detected. Dooby dooby doo. Just a moment's thought ... ... ...

That's a bit like the sound of one hand clapping, zeuzzz. The statistical significance of a single result is pretty low, I'd say, and if you ignore that single result then there ain't no statistics.

it can be the first direct detection of gravitational waves only, nothing else :D

Righto, dweebly. We don't know that the star Polaris exists because we have detected light waves only, nothing else.

"This is the first direct detection of gravitational waves and the first observation of a binary black hole merger" is the quotation from your chosen reference. Now, I'd like to call your attention to the phrase "binary black hole merger" and point out that your chosen reference calls it an "observation". You quote that yourself, but it's obvious you haven't understood it.

"... don't count on stupid magazines ...". This from someone who counts on the inane ramblings of a drug-addled part-time porn star.

Me again, Beebly Feebly ...

Looks like I'm not alone. How about ... "Prof Karsten Danzmann, from the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics and Leibniz University in Hannover, Germany ... said the detection was one of the most important developments in science since the discovery of the Higgs particle, and on a par with the determination of the structure of DNA ... "It is the first ever direct detection of gravitational waves; it's the first ever direct detection of black holes ..."

How do I just KNOW that you're going to tell me he's wrong too?

Is willie unable to grasp the concept of "direct detection"?

In a nutshell, direct detection is when you receive something that was emitted or reflection from something else. Receiving light emitted from a star is direct detection, as is receiving sound waves reflected from a submarine. In this case, what we're receiving is not light, but gravity waves which were emitted from the source. Not only are we directly detecting the gravity waves (as opposed to seeing a pattern in dust between stars, as a counter-instance), but we're also directly detecting the black holes (as opposed to seeing gravitational lensing as light from another source curves around the black hole due to its strong gravity).

You're as tenacious as you are stupid, gobbly, I'll give you that.

a) Any body accelerating for any reason - not just a collision - emits gravitational waves.
b) The merging of two black holes did, indeed, produce gravitational waves large enough for LIGO to detect.
c) The only way we know of to detect such an event is by gravitational waves, just as before the advent of radio telescopy the only way we knew how to detect a star was through visible and near-visible radiation.
c) No one before that event had directly detected any black hole, single, double, or any other multiple. No one had ever detected gravitational waves either.
d) Now we have. Therefore (try hard to understand the word therefore) this is the first time any black hole has been directly detected. Insisting that we have only detected gravitational waves is the same as insisting that we see only light and therefore nothing we see can be said to exist.

We have never before detected a black hole directly. Now we've detected two. Your argument is that because we have detected two, we have not detected one. This makes you an arsehole.

Now do you see?

Really? You can barely read and write English.

So Freebill please explain these "gems" from Ra's scientific explanations?

Ra, the half chicken channelled alien
"I am Ra. We accept that some galaxies contain one system of planetary and solar groups, others containing several. I leave you in the love and the light of the One Infinite Creator. Go forth, therefore, rejoicing in the power and the peace of the One Creator. Adonai."

Which galaxy contains only one planetary system freebill? :lol: :lol:


It gets better........

Ra, the half chicken channelled alien
"I am Ra. These entities are of the Sirius galaxy."

Sirius is a star in our own galaxy. There is no such thing as the "Sirius Galaxy". Carla took too much LSD when she made this one up. :lol:

I think I know what you meant to say, frobble. Of course, being you, you actually said the direct opposite. Yes, objects spinning around their own axis do not emit gravitational waves, so my statement was over-generalised. But you knew what I meant, so this is a quibble-wibble. Not being a quibbler, I won't bother to correct your outrageously erroneous statement above.

Now - do you agree with the rest of what I said in my last post?

:D gordie's pms or low-sodium is on rise again

gordie girl; nobody can use ligo to detect all black holes in the universe, because when there is no interaction between a black hole and another heavy mass object, there are no ripples, that's why we, except a wannabe german physicist and his little admirer poodlilildodliliilidoolililidoolilido, can't call it "direct detection" :D

if one day in future, that characterisation is accepted by all scientific community, then you can cry as much as you like :D

No, no, no, doubley wibbly. According to you, there are no ripples under any circumstances at all - so no gravity waves and LIGO is a waste of investment that does nothing at all.

Gord didn't say anywhere that LIGO can be used to detect ALL black holes - nothing even vaguely like it. So you decided to invent it. I think you owe Gord an apology.

You are now desperately trying to distract attention from your situation. Let me remind you (it was more than one post ago, so I realise it's a strain on your memory) - you said "any body accelerating for any reason can not emit gravitational waves". You also said "I'M afraid I can't accept any corrections, retrieves, retracts etc. etc.". This very succinctly demonstrates for all to see that you haven't the foggiest notion what you write, let alone what you believe.

Whilst your insistence upon placing yourself in this no-win situation is hilarious, your equal insistence upon defaming Prof. Karsten Danzmann, a respected scientist in the very field we are discussing, to further your fairy tales is abhorrent. But par for the course.

The garden calls, fleapit - but I'll be back this evening to be amused by your further rants and errors on this subject.

Apologies are worthless to me; just give me useful information, that's all that will make me happy. freewillie doesn't tend to give useful information and I don't expect he ever will.

I'm unhappy with the use of "either" followed by three suggested possibilities. Should I have gone with "One of the following must be true?"

I'm unhappy with the use of "either" followed by three suggested possibilities. Should I have gone with "One of the following must be true?"

It's hard to say. Can a turd be made even more turd like? Is there that much difference between an IQ of 60 and 70? If someone has chronic schizophrenia with insane beliefs and they tell you they have even more insane beliefs, does it really matter? :lol:


Your "Next Mission"
Ra the alien contacted me by telephone ( Carla's hair was offline last night and not receiving channelling aliens) and he gave me your new mission instructions.

A) You will send forum private messages to Zeuzz and Gorgeous and invite them to join your team, "Team Freebill".

B) You will then all relocate to the Bring4th "Law of One" forum and receive thanks from all the members there, for your good work on behalf of the cult.

C) You then have my permission to have blue movie high density sex with Zeuzz and Gorgeous, or whatever you people do there.
:D
