Hi!

I don't think this has been discussed here, even if it's kind of not so new:

This
Caltech Press release June 2008
is on how you can find out something by finding nothing at all, or: how the non-detection of gravitational waves so far does teach us something after all.

I don't recall this result, mentioned here or not. Certainly a solid 'orthogonal' measurement to extant viewpoints. Bounds the character of the pulsar and thus models that seek to describe it. A calibration really.

Cheers, Mike.

I think this must be the

I think this must be the preprint of a paper that is dealing with the upper limits for the Crab Nebular pulsar described in press release. A PDF copy can be downloaded from that page.
