LIGO’s new Gravitational Pulse – puzzling for Black-Hole interpretations

The four instances of the inspiral-merger pattern of a gravitation pulse from coalescing binary objects are over-interpreted and raise statistical questions. The final ring-down is too weak to distinguish exotic ‘Black Hole’ mergers from neutron star mergers. Why no identifications of the expected closer smaller merging events? The extraordinary claim to ‘primordial’ Black Holes is based on uncertain indications of spins. Continue reading
