Gravitational Wave Discovery Faces Scrutiny
Hi,

I happened to come across this surprising news (perhaps a bit late) and thought it will be great to share this around.

I guess that's why scientists usually don't use unpublished works.

Thanks! Not too late!

I thought the methodology behind this claim would turn out to be more important than the result.

Indeed, the methodology for that claim is crucial and it seems to me that BICEP2 team is confident with their model. But the result should be of equal importance because if their model is not wrong, this could be the greatest discovery for this century and perhaps...new lecture material for next year?
