No. You have way more to worry about with humans and pollution and climate change and violence. Outside the planet meteors would be a more short term problem.

The distortion to space-time from the event that they measured in September was large enough to change the distance from Earth to Alpha Centauri by about the width of a human hair for a fraction of a second.

This one was considerably less energetic.

That said, you should always check under your bed to make sure there aren't inspiralling black holes before drifting off for the night. Tongue

Second Gravitational Wave Detection
What is gravity? I know the effects of it but what is it?

RE: Second Gravitational Wave Detection
Under relativity gravity is a description of the shape of space as it is bent by matter. Under quantum theory gravity is a mystery. Anything beyond that is basically speculation at this point in time.

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.
