So I was checking out stuff like news and # online, and I read this. So detecting gravity waves is a fairly new phenomenon even though Einstein theorized it a century ago. Anyways they, the are claiming to have some breaking new discovery that they seem to need a week to prepare for. I am going to be honest, I am getting my hopes up and expecting that the gravtity waves detection has gotten to the point they can see the ripples caused by alien spaceships. So that's what I am going with, ALIENS. But obviously the announcement will be something much less dramatic as usual. Maybe they will confirm we live in a simulation lol!

News Release • October 11, 2017
Issued jointly by the LIGO Laboratory, LIGO Scientific Collaboration, National Science Foundation, and Virgo Collaboration
Scientists to discuss new developments in gravitational-wave astronomy
Scientists representing LIGO, Virgo, and some 70 observatories will reveal new details and discoveries made in the ongoing search for gravitational waves.
The gathering will begin with an overview of new findings from LIGO, Virgo, and partners that span the globe, followed by details from telescopes that work with the LIGO and Virgo Collaboration to study extreme events in the cosmos. 
Monday, October 16, 2017
10:00 AM US EDT
** Panels to begin at 10:00 a.m. and 11:15 a.m., with a 15-minute break in between. Event expected to conclude by 12:30 p.m.
The National Press Club
Holeman Lounge
529 14th Street NW, 13th Floor
Washington, DC 20045
The following researchers will offer brief opening remarks over the course of two panels, with time for questions at the end of each panel:
10:00 a.m.
Moderator: France Córdova, Director of the National Science Foundation
David Reitze, Executive Director, LIGO Laboratory/Caltech

Jo van den Brand, Spokesperson, Virgo Collaboration/Nikhef, VU University Amsterdam
Julie McEnery, Fermi Project Scientist, NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center
Marica Branchesi, Virgo Collaboration/Gran Sasso Science Institute, Italy
Vicky Kalogera, Astrophysicist, LIGO Scientific Collaboration/Northwestern University
11:15 a.m.
Moderator: Jim Ulvestad, NSF Assistant Director (Acting) for Mathematical and Physical Sciences

Anyone here familiar with swordplay or using Klingon type bladed weapons???....methinks things are going to get olde school cave-man around planet earth soon.

Gravity shielding would be nice. Spin up those shells of liquid mercury!

Keep us posted.

I bet they will say this time we detected black holes colliding from 3 ligo detectors not one or two..

Because of this we know exactly where a black hole collision took place billions of years ago..

Even that sounds too exciting for them to say it lol..

You told me too early.. I should have been notified no more than a day in advance.. I'm going to be so disappointed.

Someone in the other thread brought up the possibility of verification (optical or radio) of the source of the waves. That would actually be a pretty big deal.

I believe frequencies will be brought forth in their findings such as electromagnetic harmonic as well as the repeating of the signature and its duration...
They wouldn't elude to any understanding of any such detected signal of course...
But such a signal being found does not hint to me of a message from extraterrestrial civilizations...
Instead such a signature seems more to me another possible pattern... A new constant such as the speed of light which would be another huge indicator for this reality being little more than a simulation...

That sounds fun. I like it.

Now I'm really going to be disappointed.

Hey don't let me stop your imagination from doing it's thing...
Gravitational waves could easily be a fingerprint of a
gigantic mothership capable of bending space... time...light... reality...

Stop it.. I'm going to be bored to tears in the fabric of reality..

How can you be bored by this. As real as it gets. And it's a wave.

Rocks work fine, trade up kinetically.

MAYBE Jesus ...that would piss them off

As for black holes in the future scientists will realize just how they are formed...
They will find that all black holes originate from advanced civilizations whom played with large scale particle accelerators...
The first warning signs detected by said civilizations was increased volcanic and seismic activity combined with erratic global weather patterns which spawned larger and larger storm systems annually... But the real indicator was all the damn sinkholes...

Its not aliens lol

its probably further study on the "gravity waves" they believe originated in the "big bang"

Just watched a show on it last night

Perhaps they've found that ships that travel at phenomenal speeds (near SOL and SOL+) cause pond-like waves in the otherwise stillness of space and can be traceed directly to their origins. Perhaps they have associated "gravity waves" with some of mysterious signals found with radio telescopes. Yeah. Wild speculations, but then I personally know that UFOs definitely exist and we have been missing an important piece of the puzzle about their being able to be here.

Would they come outright and suggest such or similar associations? No, it would take some reading between the lines.

unless, the singular Big Bang is the infinite Cosmos composed of only a Quantum Reality underwent a epoch of Creation where many Big Bangs, not unlike the Spots on a Leopard's Coat, all spaced some 14 Billion light-years apart from one another, went into Creation mode and 'popped-into-existence' as ever expanding crucibles which Birthed the physical matter universe we are part of. The Gravity Waves we detect are leftovers from the slamming of one physical universe into another, which creates the appearance of a single but lumpy time-space fabric of this Cosmos of several multiverses

My guess is they have figured out how to easily detect gravitational waves.

My hope is that they found a way ,using the waves, to better detect habitable worlds.

Maybe the moon isn't what we've been taught to believe it is.

That is precisely the announcement I am hoping to hear. Precisely indeed. Then we can find where the spaceships are that are cloaked as well.
