Gravitational Waves Detected

The magnetic scalar wave detector is a success! We have captured our first gravitational wave with its associated gamma ray burst. The raw data is available online and is accessible from the Magnetic Scalar Waves page. An Excel spreadsheet lists the exact gravitational wave times along with the GRB time.

In the future, there will likely be gravitational waves listed and no associated gamma ray burst. This is because not all GRBs can be detected due to interference from the Sun, Earth, and Moon. Also, there are occasional satellite equipment malfunctions due to changes in the space environment.

We are presently looking for a theoretical physics partner who is affiliated with a University or professional lab/observatory. If you are interested in collaborating with us, please contact David Thomson through the profile link in the right column.
