Default Anti-gravity Waves

Hi,

If gravity waves are predicted by theory then shouldn't anti-gravity
waves also be possible?

A*s*i*m*o*v

.... This stellar body conforms to Einstein's theory of Relativity

Yes.

Think of it like this:

Chemical booster rockets able to propel us to the Moon became avaliable a short
time after 1900 AD.

The necessary vehicle did not exist in 212 AD, but it still was "possible".

If we were talking about inventing something then anything (or almost)
is possible. What I meant is that normal matter exhibits an attractive
gravitational effect but so does anti-matter. However, my question is
about a repulsive gravitational effect. For example is the newly
discovered acceleration of the BB expansion caused by an unknown
repulsive form of gravity or something else?

.... Gravity is a myth, the Earth sucks.

That is still open to question AIUI. WMAP went
some way to eliminating some theories

If you track down the relevant papers, you may
will get more detail.
