Main Question or Discussion Point

I remember vaguely hearing about gravitrons being observed in some university in June. Did this really happen and can anyone give me a link or some details about the discovery?

If they were, somebody should better stop the latest supercollider project and divert savings to the next most promising project.

It's "gravitons" not "gravitrons". I only point this out in case you are Googling for information.

No reputable experimenters have claimed to have discovered gravitons in the past couple of months. Indeed, no one has even claimed to have found meaningful experimental evidence of gravity waves yet.

Tell you this, you can answer that question for yourself very easily. Just type 'gravitons discovered' or 'gravitons observed' in the Google search bar. If you are redirected to sites of serious organizations like CERN, FermiLab, NASA, universities like MIT, CALTECH, STANFORD, BERKELEY,...you will find it out. You have the entire internet for yourself, man, start doing some independent research and be a real MAN, Hihaaaaa


Good Luck

ps the answer is NO

Marlon harsh?! Perish forbid... :eek:
He didn't even tell you what to do if you were directed to "Sid's lab".

The last I read fermilab and cern ( don't think they are done yet though, don't remember) were both on the hunt for gravitons and so far they have been unsuccessful in finding evidence of them

Er... Fermilab has never gone out to look for "gravitons". They were trying to find the Higgs bosons. These are not gravitons.

LEP at CERN were never in any serious contention to find the Higgs. That is why it has been dismantled in favor of the LHC. The LHC is still being built.

The current (August) issue of the Discovery magazine has an article discussing string theory, which summarizes attempts to measure gravitons and gravity waves.
 
Actually,gravitons are thought to be the medium of interacion of the gravitational force. i suppose u know that.it is also thought to be the unit of antienergy or negative energy because gravity is thought to be antienergy

gravity is thought to be antienergy
It is? That's news to me! :bugeye:

Do you have a reference or citation for that statement, from a reputable scientific source?

yaa.i got this from a site of astronomy and black holes.theres a whole lot of explanation n it.this is the link:
http://www.astronomy.net/forums/blackholes/messages/5976.shtml
A link to an internet forum is not a reputable scientific source. Show us a reference to a published, peer-reviewed article in a scientific journal.

Furthermore, that link is nonsense. The first paragraph reads:
crank site said:
If E=mc2, then energy and matter exist and are exchangeable. We know also that antimatter exists. Scientists are now making anti-Hydrogen regularly in the laboratory. So, if energy, matter and antimatter exist, shouldn’t anti-energy exist, at least conceptually?
That's just silly.
