A Galaxy-Sized Observatory For Gravitational Waves

fmackay Re:A complementary approach (190 comments)

With a sufficient number of pulsars there should be a pair such that a line between the two is sufficiently tangential to a gravitational wavefront to allow for coincidences to be detected in a period substantially shorter than a human lifetime.

I would be most surprised if the experiment was not designed so that this period should be less than the life expectancy of the lead researcher, less the median Nobel lag in Physics.
