Testable hypotheses are always welcome in science.  I look forward to the day that the team's predictions can be validated against observable data.

Dark Gravity sounds like a new science fiction series that Netflix will cancel after two seasons.

/ Got nothing, too dark.

I figured dark energy's a rounding error, there's got to be a lot of energy way beyond our ability to calculate in the infinitesimal x infinity right?

Yes, I read that in Dennis DeYoung's voice.

Very nicely done, subs.

100 years from now, cosmologists will think back on our current theories of dark matter and dark energy, and wonder how scientists could have been so stupid. Anti-gravity built into spacetime? Matter that is so conveniently invisible and virtually undetectable? Then they will laugh like drunken sailors.

Ah?

I thought it was The Tubes!

Yes, just like we laugh at general relativity and quantum mechanics.

No, like we now laugh at the idea of the luminiferous aether, or phlogiston.

Assuming there are people left alive in 100 years

Dark energy replaced by dark gravity, which, conveniently, TFA never explains?  Not illuminating in the least.

The "chirp" at the end of this is from the actual recording made of the gravitational wave passing Earth as detected by LIGO.

Another vaguely posited idea that 'some effect yet unknown' could mean relativity is wrong?

How original.

At least this time there are some nice expensive experiments to be done to prove themselves wrong..

Right, because we totally look back at the scientific theories of the 1920s and laugh at how silly they were
