WHY U.S. SHOULD PROSECUTE LIGO December 27, 2017 WHAT IS THIS ABOUT? Over the past two years, a series of fantastic astronomical discoveries in the realm of gravitational waves (resulted from black hole merger, neutron star merger) has created a worldwide media blitz. The scientific instrument that made these discoveries is called the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO). Every single one of these discoveries was a scientific fraud. In a bizarre spectacle, three LIGO leaders just received the Nobel Prize in Physics. This is stark testimony to the breadth and the depth of intellectual corruption we are witnessing. THE CASE AGAINST LIGO: (1). The LIGO team built an instrument network that has been placed in documented scientific evidence in public as not being able to do what it had set out to do (detect gravitational waves). This has not been admitted by the LIGO team, and the falsehood that LIGO is a proven detector of gravitational waves has been strongly maintained by the LIGO team and a number of supporting/enabling groups. (2). Assuming for the sake of argument that LIGO were in principle able to detect gravitational waves, there still remain (publicly documented) fatal scientific defects that have not been admitted by the LIGO team, and the false discoveries have been strongly maintained. (3). LIGO has thus far cost upwards of 1 billion tax dollars, and more moneys are being requisitioned on the strength of the patently false discoveries reported. (4). LIGO’s main funding agency, National science Foundation, is in evidence as being blind and deaf to scientific criticism by qualified and credentialed scientists. On the contrary, emphatic statements issued by the agency could have the effect of deterring any such criticisms. 167
The IIP is a research institute with an international vocation, permanently facing the frontier areas of theoretical physics. Its mission is to intensify the exchange of scientific knowledge with the international community and, in particular with the Latin American community, being a pole unifying national strategic areas of theoretical physics.
