LIGO: still nothing

The LIGO team - or after you look at page 1, you may want to call them the LIGO nation - has searched through 2 weeks of their data for gravitational waves from black hole binaries and so far they found nothing. But it's not yet a reason to conclude that LIGO won't work or even that the gravity waves don't exist!

I think LIGO can only detect gravitational radiation from supernova within the Virgo cluster. It may be even a smaller radius. Since they don't seem to happen more than about once a century, don't hold your breath.
