Gravitational wave detector can find exoplanets in nearby galaxies

Far-reaching search When the European Space Agency launches its Laser Interferometer Space Antenna (LISA), which represents a network of satellites that can detect weak waves of gravitational waves by merging black holes, they may also become Thousands of satellites discover new exoplanets. Currently, all 4,000 exoplanets found by astronomers are in close proximity to our solar system – the farthest …

The dark matter detector makes an incredible neutrino observation

A detector designed for the hunt for dark matter has made a particle physics observation that will hopefully help physicists identify important truths about our universe. No, dark matter has not been discovered, but the new result proves that these extremely sensitive detectors are valuable to scientists for a variety of reasons. In terms of gravity, the universe behaves as …

Earth's gravitational wave detector, LIGO, is online again and now stronger

One of the most remarkable experiments in history – a pair of giant machines observing wave-waves, known as gravitational waves, in space-time, will wake up from a half-year nap on Monday. And it will be about 40% stronger than before. This experiment is called the Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory (LIGO). It consists of two huge, L-shaped detectors, which together …

Gravitational Waves: Black hole detector for upgrade

Image copyright NSF Caption The LIGO Louisiana Laboratory, where gravitational waves were detected, is ready to be upgraded The British and US governments have announced a £ 25m upgrade for the machines that discovered gravitational waves three and a half years ago. With the improved instruments, collisions of black holes can be detected almost twice as far away. By 2024, …

NASA has deployed a small dome on Mars to protect its "Marsquake" detector

Before NASA's InSight Lander collects data on Mars surface vibrations ("Marsquakes"), it must protect its seismographic instrument from wind and temperature fluctuations during its stay on the red planet. Since wild temperature fluctuations on Mars can mean fluctuations of about 170 degrees Farenheit during a Mars day (sol), contractions and extensions of the seismometer were a problem that needs to …

InSight Marsquake Detector gets an intelligent dome to protect it from the harsh Martian environment

The wind and heat shield sits on the InSight seismometer. Image: NASA / JPL-Caltech A dome above the InSight seismometer now protects the sensitive device from morning wind and extreme temperature fluctuations NASA's stationary InSight lander reached Mars on December 19th. Mission controllers have used their various instruments continuously. In the last few weeks, the team has adapted the seismic …

View of the LISA gravitational wave detector

This concept has already been proven by the LISA Pathfinder mission, where only one spacecraft and two mirrors were used to test the technology behind the larger LISA company, Larson said. The goal of the mission was to find out if changes between the two mirrors can be measured so accurately that LISA detects gravitational waves. "It has been tremendously …
