on the table) and somehow figured out how to put the same glitch 1500 miles away, a 30th of a second delayed. So we’re good to go. We’re on to the next problem. AL: Okay. I just want reassurance. NDT: No, it’s good! We have competent people thinking about this stuff. We’re not just making shit up. OK, let us take his points one by one. First, Tyson says LIGO is so sensitive that it picks up a car traveling far away. LIGO responding to a car far away or to snow falling on cedars nearby or whatever has absolutely nothing to do with the working principle of the LIGO instrument. These spurious signals are recorded because they cause something to go out of whack inside LIGO. And most anything that goes out of whack inside LIGO will produce a LIGO “whack” signal. This signal is notgenerated according to the LIGO principle of operation. This process does not test anything about the LIGO working principle. Second, he says that the sequential arrival of the “discovery” signals is proof that it is a gravitational wave. End of discussion, he says. The sequential arrival can occur due to a number of reasons: High altitude geomagnetic disturbance, deep Earth seismic disturbance, etc. Even fluctuations in the DC bridge connecting the American Eastern and Western electric power grids have been suggested as a possible cause of this nearsimultaneous observation of the same signal at the two stations. In fact, when an earlier discovery of gravitational wave was reported on the basis of such a simultaneity, Rainer Weiss himself shot this down, saying it was due to geomagnetic disturbance. Third, Tyson says that the LIGO discovery should be accepted because it has been made by “competent” people. Similarly competent people also reported the COBE Satellite discovery and the BICEP2 discovery. Both were fraud science. LIGO leader Rainer Weiss was also the scientific leader of the COBE project.

PRIZES GALORE No sooner was the LIGO discovery announced than the prize gives started falling over each other to get to LIGO to hand them the prize. They were backed by prizegiving jury panels made of big name scientists. There is probably more truth in advertising in Cairo’s Khan Al-Khalili market than there is among these prize-giving bodies. They are a disgrace to all that we as a human society hold as collective good. 101
