In the wake of the recent detection of gravitational wave signal GW150914, we investigate whether GW150914 could have been produced by something other than a binary black hole system. Our proposed candidate is a binary system of solitonic boson stars. The choice of solitonic boson stars is due mainly to the structural properties of their ground states, as solitonic boson stars are capable of forming very compact thin-wall ground states which would likely correctly mimic the gravitational… CONTINUE READING
