  1. The first detection was from coalescing black holes, yes - but how would that signal be affected by other intervening black holes, that the gravitational wave passed through or by, on it's way to our earth based detectors?
  2. Gravitational waves are said to cross the Universe without being affected by anything. Has anyone got a view on whether gravitational waves (as detected by LIGO) could be affected by Black Holes? Could this provide a method for mapping the presence and frequency of intervening Black Holes within the Universe and their passage to us?
  3. OK, after writing the above and posting, I'm sure I got it wrong. Another try.....my latest final interpretation(!) is...as far as a light particle is concerned, it gets to where it is going, no matter where it is going (even to the end of the universe) immediately...as a photon (from the external observer's world, light has a wave/particle duality) gets closer and closer to the speed of light, an external observer sees the clock of that body running slower edging towards time stopping. So, for the light particle, all is normal, but as far as the photon understands it, the external observers t
  4. Perhaps I heard the same thing? I used i-player about 10 times to repeat one of Brian Cox's comments, some years ago, because I just couldn't get it. Martin Rees & Patrick Moore were on the same program and it was clear that Patrick did not understand what Brian had said. My final interpretation was...as far as a light particle is concerned, it gets to where it is going, no matter where it is going (even to the end of the universe) immediately...as a body gets closer and closer to the speed of light, an external observer sees the clock of that body running slower edging towards time stoppi
