I see there was a question very similar to this. Sorry. It looks like there are no (detectable) gravity waves yet, out there. Correct ? – user6090 Dec 19 '11 at 20:55
If there were, it would be covered in the news by a bunch of journalists who have no clue what they're talking about. – endolith Dec 20 '11 at 20:53
Comment to the question (v1): It seems this post is conflating gravity waves and gravitational waves. Related for the latter: physics.stackexchange.com/q/10161/2451 – Qmechanic Aug 30 '12 at 6:12
(Advanced) LIGO has, on 11 February 2016, announced detection of gravitational waves from a binary black hole merger with more than $5\sigma$ certainty. – Danu Feb 15 at 0:02
