Woo Hoo?

Lumo reports on an email by somebody who says "I know a guy who said he saw..."

So has LIGO really seen a black hole merger? Next Thursday, February 11, is supposed to be the day for the big reveal - 36 and 29 solar mass black holes merging while radiating away 3 solar masses of gravitational waves. If true, this is really big - probably the biggest thing since the discovery of the positron.

We shall see.
