Some of the coalescing black holes could help scientists understand how black holes partner up before they collide.
The waves change the particles they encounter on their path & scientists have figured out in what ways.
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.
Scientists detect gravitational waves from a collision of the lightest binary black hole pair observed by LIGO so far
The waves were produced by the merger of black holes seven and 12 times the mass of the Sun.
Detection of colliding neutron stars is just the beginning of a new era of gravitational wave astronomy
The new observations confirm that at least some short gamma-ray bursts are generated by the merging of neutron stars.
More than 40 scientists from 13 Indian institutions played a role in the observation of gravitational waves from colliding neutron stars
The Indian scientists were part of the team of 1,200 scientists from 100 institutions worldwide.
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.
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.
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
For the first time, gravitational waves from a distant black hole merger observed by Virgo and both LIGO detectors
The transient gravitational-wave signal was produced by the collision of two stellar mass black holes, researchers said.
