somethink like this

2. Prior to making a public announcement that evidence of extraterrestrial intelligence has been detected, the discoverer should promptly inform all other observers or research organizations that are parties to this declaration, so that those other parties may seek to confirm the discovery by independent observations at other sites and so that a network can be established to enable continuous monitoring of the signal or phenomenon. Parties to this declaration should not make any public announcement of this information until it is determined whether this information is or is not credible evidence of the existence of extraterrestrial intelligence. The discoverer should inform his/her or its relevant national authorities.

Sir Ulli, as much as I

Sir Ulli, as much as I respect your input, I really have no idea how the content of your message has anything to do with the title of the message. I'm confused. If this project finds a gravitational wave, I don't think we need to worry about it being from an eti....erm please explain?

GG; What we have here is a failure to communicate. The answer to Ullie's question is much simpler than his reference to the ET business. You simply build a tent around it a charge admission. Does this answer the mail?

Not that there are many folks out there who can detect a gravitational wave....but wouldn't just publishing a paper in a peer review publication be the way to go like most other scientific discoveries?

Or maybe I'm having one of my renown dim periods.....

Live long and crunch.

My question is not what to do

My question is not what to do when we find a gravity wave.... but how will we...

...We few, we happy few, we band of crunchers;
For he to-day that sheds his CPU time with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so nerdy,
This day shall gentle his condition:
And gentlemen in sports bars now a-bed
Shall think themselves accursed they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That crunched with us upon Saint Crispin's day!....

oops... ummm....

... How will we know IF we have found one? Will that spiffy screen saver blink and beep at us?

This question is even MORE intrigueing now that they have added false source signals to the S3 data.

How will we, the merry (if somewhat oblivious) band of crunchers, know if a WU on our computers detects one of these false signals?... Or better yet, a real one?

I thenk the question is more towards, how would you know that:

a) one was detected at all?
b) that you were the one that detected it?
c) that others knew who detected it?
d) how do we know we correctly detected it?
e) where is my reward for detecting it?

I can't remember where I read

I can't remember where I read about this exactly, think it was at the Pirates site but its not important, the important thing is that I read it. It was regarding how we would know that our PC had found a gravity wave in the WU that we are processing.

Apparently the app is not designed to know that it has "found something" it simply returns a set of data to the real number crunchers at LIGO. Apparently this data required further analysis of some type to determine the possibility of the observation of a gravity wave in a WU.
