Merger of neutron star may have led to birth of the lowest mass black hole ever found reveal NASA scientists
If it is indeed a black hole, astronomers expect it to continue to become fainter that has recently been observed as the shock wave weakens.
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.
Despite India’s achievement in science, there still remains scope for further improvement in science and research
Faculty from the premier institutes of sciences could be freed from routine administrative duties to devote more time for research.
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
Two detections of gravitational waves caused by collisions between supermassive black holes should be possible each year using space-based instruments
The MoU comes about a month after the Union Cabinet approved the construction of the long-awaited third LIGO interferometer.
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.
Union cabinet gives 'in principle approval' to establish LIGO, India's gravitational wave observatory
The LIGO-India project will bring considerable opportunities in cutting-edge technology for the Indian industry.
Tianqin, China's domestic gravitational wave research project initiated by the Sun Yat-sen University in July 2015, is awaiting governmental approval.
Scientists have for the first time detected gravitational waves, ripples in space and time hypothesized by Albert Einstein a century ago
Gravitational waves are a measure of strain in space, an effect of the motion of large masses that stretches the fabric of space-time.
