dumb layman here but

The gravity wave won't have a redshift correct? I wonder how they knew the fairly specific mass sizes involved and the distance. Guess will have to wait for smarter people to explain it me as I am sure the math is going to be impressive. All around congrats to all the boffins for giving us a new tool. Also Congress get off your butts and fund the gravity wave detector in space NASA has mentioned before.
