The purpose of this article is to determine
the velocity at which the force of gravity is propagated.

The central finding of this computational analysis is that whilst the LIGO GW150914 gravitational-wave experiment is a vital component of astrophysics theory from an engineering and experimental perspective, the theoretical findings in article PhysRevLett.116.061102 (hereafter referred to as Abbot) are intrinsically flawed when programmed in an evolutionary computer algorithm.

Abbot inherits the claim by Einstein that the gravitational-wave theory (gravity propagating at the velocity of light) will result in binary celestial bodies spiraling inwards towards the center of the system.

The main reason why this article claims that both Einstein & Abbot's theoretical analysis is incorrect is simply termed: BOGVOS - Binary-Orbit, Gravity-Velocity, Out-Spiral.

binary-orbit gravity-velocity out-spiral

In the simulated computational graphics above, each of the systems evolves differently according to the two theories on the velocity of gravity at two different non-specified times (time 1 and time 2).

The Newtonian orbits return to their origin due to them pulling perpendicular to the movement of the body.

However, with parameters similar to the LIGO pair including a delay in gravity caused by the velocity of gravity being the same as the velocity of light; the pair out-spirals so quickly that it is easy to observe.
