Gravitational "waves" First, I confess that I am not a physicist by training; I work for an RF engineering firm. However, I study theoretical and astrophysics from those who have the extensive math background, and attempt to conceptualize their theories. I am not a conspiratist, and I certainly hope never to initiate a crackpot subject. My only purpose is to share ideas that wake me up at night with those who may be able to steer me in the proper direction. Okay, enough of the disclaimer. If we are hurtling through space at high rates of speed, would not each object be moving through the fabric of spacetime constantly? Wouldn't this result in constant wakes of gravity waves? I picture putting a sphere into a large pool of water and moving it quickly from one end to the other--there would be swirls of wake following it until the water settled again. Would not the same apply to massive objects that curve space in all dimensions (like a sphere in water) moving rapidly through spacetime? When I think of some descriptions of Einstein's vision (a ball on a trampoline, for example), it fails to capture this movement through space, which according to expansion theory, we are. In short, if our currently accepted view of mass curving spacetime in all dimensions (resulting in the effect we call gravity), should we not expect wakes of gravity waves/disturbances in the fabric of spacetime that we could constantly monitor?
