Bets on announcement of discovery of gravitational waves later today? Although some years ago some guy (Joseph H. Taylor) won a Nobel Prize for his extremely accurate measurements of a pulsar losing energy that showed that the amount of energy lost per period of time was explained perfectly if gravity waves were the cause... or something like that...
I don't think anyone in the sciences are saying there is no such thing as gravity waves, only how hard they are to detect and to quantify, such as the G4V version V GR. Apparently the way you try to detect the waves will change the expected results since the two kind of waves are mutually exclusive and takes different techniques to observe.
News at 11. Literally in this case
