string theory is a scalar-tensor theory of gravity, with higher order corrections. in light of the result discovery of gravitational waves of 2 black holes merging, matching GR in the strong field regime, how much deviation should strong theory differ from GR in the strong field regime and can LIGO detect them?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

if results continue to match GR in the strong field regime and not match up with string theory, how would this affect string as a theory of QG
