A unique (so far) gravitational wave signal

Originally published on April 20, 2020 by the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics (Albert Einstein Institute or AEI) in Hanover. The expectations of gravitational wave researchers were met: Gravitational wave discoveries are now part of their daily work, as they identified new gravitational wave candidates once a week in the previous O3 observation run. Now the researchers have released …

What are gravitational waves? | Basics of astronomy

-> Researchers at the Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory (LIGO) recorded gravitational waves for the first time on September 14, 2015. Here a technician is working on some optics for a LIGO detector. Image via LIGO. Gravitational waves are waves in the structure of space-time. Just as a ship that travels across the surface of a calm sea leaves a …

Elvis left the planet and returned? Gravitational wave detectors capture harmony from King’s Pop Hit

technology 10:31 GMT April 19, 2020(updated 10:38 GMT 04/19/2020) Get a short URL The king’s fascination with UFOs and extraterrestrial life forms was written in detail. His shocking death in 1977 was rejected by some fans who were desperate to believe that he might have been kidnapped by aliens or that he himself was an alien. Scientists who monitor space …

Earth's gravitational wave detection network has a new observatory

The world's most powerful tool for detecting space-time waves is greatly improved. An observatory in Japan joins three giant detectors in Washington, Louisiana and Italy to form a global network of powerful observatories that study waves in space-time. The network will expand an area of ​​science born only four years ago when the Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory (LIGO) solved …

Underground detector in Japan to search for gravitational waves

Illustration of the underground KAGRA detector. Illustration : ICRR, Univ. from Tokyo. A fourth gravitational wave detector, this one in Gifu Prefecture Japan, will join this December's global search for cosmic events causing waves in space-time. The Kamioka gravitational wave detector -Wave Detector (KAGRA) is in the commissioning phase according to a press release and will link the two LIGO …

The "ringing" of the black hole emitting gravitational waves supports Einstein's Theory of Relativity

The "ringing" of the black hole, which emitted weak gravitational wave tones after the merger, supports Einstein's theory of relativity even more. Researchers have discovered sounds that emanate from a black hole. The discovery confirms a theory by Albert Einstein from 100 years ago The merging of black holes emits gravitational waves that reverberate at certain sounds. The waves could …

Gravitational waves could better represent the rate of expansion of the universe than anything else

In recent years, scientists have been split into two sides, each of which attempts to measure the rate of expansion of the universe using another model. A third method with gravitational waves could provide more data and end the war. Gravitational waves are small temporal and spatial waves. They were observed in 2015 using the Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory …
