    Under the most favourable distribution model, we can say at the 95% confidence level that this first generation of gravitational wave detectors could register a neutron star merger every one to two years," said Dr Vicky Kalogera, Assistant Professor of Physics and Astronomy at Northwestern University in Illinois, USA.
    thanks for origonal post LAB GUY.
    it seems the axe may fall on some theories in a very few years,
    or be subject to major modification, when null results are
    returned from LIGO etc, i just wounder how much "wiggle", room
    will be left after these null results.
