From the recently observed propagation of gravitational waves through space-time an upper limit can be deduced for the stiffness of space-time through which the gravitational wave propagates. The upper limit is extremely weak, implying that the stiffness of space-time is at least 14 orders of magnitude weaker than that of jello.
