Scientists announce first direct observation of gravitational waves from the merger of two neutron stars
Near-simultaneous detection of the gravitational waves and gamma rays indicate that gravitational waves travel at the speed of light.
LIGO-Virgo detects colliding neutron stars for first time: We are entering new era in observational astronomy, says A Gopakumar
LIGO and Virgo interferometer on Monday announced the first ever detection of gravitational waves from a pair of colliding neutron stars.
Calculations show that certain types of dark matter could form giant clouds around astrophysical black holes.
Scientists identify five pairs of supermassive black holes, paving the way for better understanding of gravitational waves
These black hole couples formed when two galaxies collided and merged with each other, forcing their supermassive black holes close together.
Nobel Prize 2017 for Physics awarded to three US scientists for the detection of gravitational waves
Three US scientists won the 2017 Nobel prize for physics on Tuesday for opening up a new era of astronomy by detecting gravitational waves
Nobel Prize for Physics awarded to Rainer Weiss, Barry Barish, Kip Thorne for work on gravitational waves
Scientists Rainer Weiss, Barry Barish and Kip Thorne won the 2017 Nobel Prize for Physics for decisive contributions in the observation of gravitational waves, the award-giving body said on Tuesday.
The finding may help scientists get a better understand of how gravitational waves are formed.
The detection of gravitational waves by LIGO is an opportunity to learn more about merging black holes
Black hole merger is literally a match made in heaven.
The new detection occurred on January 4 this year during the ongoing second observing run of the Advanced LIGO detectors in the US.
A US scientist has developed a mathematical model for a viable time machine — an advance that could bring stuff of popular science-fiction closer to reality.
It’s been a year now since scientists at Caltech and MIT’s Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (Ligo) detected the first “chirp” of the aftermath of the collision of two black-holes
The LIGO India project is likely to be commissioned in 2024 and its activities would require Indian universities churning out young researchers trained in the science to take up the mantle of exploration of the universe
Science fiction and reality collided when LIGO opened up our sixth sense to understand the universe and set the ball rolling for a new era of observational astrophysics.
The Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO) has resumed scientific operations after a series of engineering test runs.
Maharashtra's Hingoli district has been chosen for carrying out experiments on the ambitious LIGO project that proved existence of gravitational waves.
Two detections of gravitational waves caused by collisions between supermassive black holes should be possible each year using space-based instruments
Studying gravitational waves can reveal important information about cataclysmic astrophysical events involving black holes and neutron stars.
The facility for studying gravitational waves, which will be called LIGO, will be the third of its kind in the world as well the first outside the US.
Indian scientists had major role to play in the scientific discovery of gravitational waves.
