When the LIGO Scientific Collaboration decided to make their data freely available for anyone to use, I kinda doubt they had this in mind. I’m guessing most of the collaboration members will approve, and some of them may be wearing one soon.
But how awkward is it going to be when you go to some snazzy soiree and you see someone else wearing the exact same data set? Here’s hoping we have lots of new LIGO detections soon to keep the social strife to a minimum.
Do you know anyone cool enough to appreciate this dress? I sure do. Time to place an order.
