[time-nuts] How good is the left end of your ADEV curve?

way way way left.

Ray Weiss was the speaker at the Stanford Physics Colloquium today.  In case 
you don't recognize the name, he is one of the leaders of the LIGO project 
that detected gravity waves about a year ago.

He's a good speaker with a neat topic.  He spent a lot of time giving credit 
to other people.

One of the far-out future ideas he mentioned was collecting data on lots of 
pulsars.  If you could get good enough data, maybe you could see gravity 
waves wandering around the universe.  (Maybe leftover from the big bang.  I 
didn't catch that part.)

The time scale is months or years.  Micro Hertz.  The unit for wavelength 
would be light-years.

How long will it be before we need a gravity-nuts list?

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
