    I realize light and such will bend around a massive object, like the famout 8.4 microradians of bending of light passing tangentially to the surface of the sun, close to the surface. Here is my question:
    Assuming the theory of gravitational radiation is correct, neutron stars in orbit close around each other producing prodigious gravitation radiation, etc. Would the gravitational lens of the sun bend gravitational radiation?
