The discovery opens up the possibility of black hole mergers in globular clusters – a potential source of gravitational waves.
Study authors suspect the low-frequency signal might be coming from gravitational waves, which serves an indicator of cosmic activity.
Some of the coalescing black holes could help scientists understand how black holes partner up before they collide.
The system is thought to be a precursor to ones like the double neutron star system that prompted the 2017 discovery of gravitational waves.
Gravitational wave discovery from a huge cosmic collision leaves astronomers wondering what hit them
Heavier than 'any other pair of neutron stars ever observed,' astronomers aren't ruling out that the objects could be tiny black holes.
Researchers are hoping to find signs of large, spinning black holes that can help in the hunt for gravitational waves.
While in India, the CERN exhibit will be bilingual — in English and Hindi — for the benefit of the general public.
Scientists think it might have originated from a neutron star merger 500 million light-years from Earth.
Neutron stars collide & a black hole eats up a neutron star, all in a day's work for science.
While Einstein is credited with its discovery, the term 'black hole' has an interesting origin story of its own.
Apparently, Kauravas were test tube babies & gravitational waves are actually 'Narendra Modi waves'.
New theory says build up of pain waves from dying animals can cause quakes: Geologists will laugh, but hypothesis holds weight
The theory published in a book says that pain waves originating from animals being slaughtered can lead to a similar destructive outcome such as an earthquake.
The study eliminates gravity waves, proposing capillary waves as the force causing hydraulic jumps
Emitted gravitational waves could provide independent and precise measurement distance
Astrophysicists recently announced the discovery of an ancient collection of stars 9,700 light years away from Earth with an age of 13.2 billion years
The absence of water vapour and thin atmosphere of Antarctica make it an ideal place for astronomy, especially when observing IR and microwave radiations.
However, observational evidence of a connection between supermassive black holes and star formation has been lacking, until now.
The Observation of gravitational waves from the merger of two neutron stars was the scientific 'breakthrough of the year'
Gravitational waves from the event first arrived at the twin Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO) detectors, located in the US.
Here is how Indian telescope data helped solve the mystery of high-speed radiation jets emanating from colliding neutron stars
When a pair of super-dense neutron stars collided in a kilonova explosion, bursts of bright flashes of gamma rays, short gamma-ray burst are expected.
LIGO's detection of neutron star collision was followed up with observations by dozens of NASA's astronomical instruments
NASA's Fermi gamma ray telescope, Swift, Hubble, Chandra X ray telescope, Spitzer and several ground based observatories captured the event.
