New gravitational wave hits Earth
For the first time, three detectors have tracked the gravitational waves emitted by a merger of two black holes — a critical new capability that allows scientists to more closely locate a gravitational wave’s birthplace in space. Chad Hanna and B. Sathyaprakash explain why.
New gravity waves hit Earth after record-breaking trip through space
Gravitational waves produced by the birth of a massive black hole, a record-breaking billions of light-years from Earth, have been detected by the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO). IGC researchers provided leadership in this discovery.
