Makes me seriously wonder what new discoveries this new science of detection could eventually lead to? Who knows.
Originally posted by ogbEinstein's theory of gravity has nothing to do with the Planck scale - in fact the theory breaks down at that scale. General relativity is formulated in terms of the stress-energy tensor (an object akin to a mass/energy density) and has no quantization of fields whatsoever.
Ok so Einstein was right again ( grav-waves).. which isn't very hard to predict if you believe in the Planck scale.

Originally posted by ogbPretty much because if they are real, which is not assured, it is very very difficult to detect, much more difficult than neutrino's for instance. Pretty much by definition since none has been found to this date. But still, what would a graiviton have to do with plancks constant?
OK so why hasn't a Graviton particle been found ?
Originally posted by ogbWell you should write a paper extolling the virtues of looking directly for a gaviton.
Wasn't saying there is any connection, per se. But it would be important as to how Gravity works, in general. Since the Higgs Boson has been detected, CERN should be trying to detect the Graviton next.
