    Primordial Gravitational Waves Continue to Elude Astronomers

    New observations put further constraints on primordial gravitational waves, but still haven't found them yet.

    "...new observations will either observe primordial gravitational waves at last, or cosmologists will have to seriously rethink the earliest moments of the universe."
    Well, they don't observe the gravitational waves directly -- they observe the polarization that theoretically results from the gravitational waves that are thought to result from early inflation. So if early inflation is ruled out, you're not kidding cosmologists have some serious rethinking to do!
    Everyone is entitled to his own opinion, but not his own facts.
