LIGO Successfully Finds Nothing!

For how long is Joe Average going to allow the squandering of millions, even billions of his hard-earned tax dollars, on things which simply - well - don't work, or are not real. And why is it that the modern space age gurus can laud success, out of pure failure! Let's have a look at the latest release from Space Daily Express about the LIGO facility, jokingly (well, they surely aren't serious...) titled "LIGO Sheds Light On Cosmic Event"... [more...]

Most famous "failed" experimenthttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michelson%E2%80%93Morley_experiment
Its results are generally considered to be the first strong evidence against the theory of a luminiferous aether. The experiment has also been referred to as "the moving-off point for the theoretical aspects of the Second Scientific Revolution".[1]



LIGO, which stands for Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory,
In August 2002, LIGO began its search for cosmic gravitational waves. Measurable emissions of gravitational waves are expected from binary systems (collisions and coalescences of neutron stars or black holes), supernova of massive stars (which form neutron stars and black holes), accreting neutron stars, rotations of neutron stars with deformed crusts, and the remnants of gravitational radiation created by the birth of the universe. The observatory may in theory also observe more exotic currently hypothetical phenomena, such as gravitational waves caused by oscillating cosmic strings or colliding domain walls. Since the early 1990s, physicists have believed that technology is at the point where detection of gravitational waves—of significant astrophysical interest—is possible.[3]

Could this possibly surpass the The Michelson–Morley experiment, for "Most Famous Failed Experiment" title?
And would it also say the same thing abut GR's BH, Neutron Stars and Big Bang? :P

I am looking out my window, searching for a tornado that will rip my house apart. So far i have been successful.
