    LIGO and Virgo are now offline until next autumn, I wonder with such a powerful event would there have been a chance of Gravitations waves?

    They're doing some other good observing with Green Bank & part of the Allen Array [SETI] with unpublished results (as yet) but so far they are accumulating add'l info. As Shostak says from SETI "Thanks to FRB 121102’s persistent hiccups (it’s been observed to flash more than 150 times), we now know that its source lies in a small galaxy 3 billion light-years away...note that FRB 121102 is a big bark from a small dog: The galaxy in which the bursts originate is many dozens of times smaller than the Milky Way."
