Gravitational Waves
Innovation increases observable volume of the universe by a factor of seven  PHYS.ORG · 3 days
The detection of Einstein's gravitational waves relies on highly precise laser measurements of small length changes. The kilometer-size detectors of the international network (GEO600,... more
Bose-Einstein condensates cannot currently detect gravitational waves  SCIENCE DAILY · 5 days
The gravitational waves created in the depths of space indeed reach Earth. Their effects, however, are so small that they could only be observed so far using kilometer-long measurement facilities. Physicists therefore discuss whether... more
LIGO supercomputer upgrade will speed up groundbreaking astrophysics research  PHYS.ORG · 2 weeks
In 2016, an international team of scientists found definitive evidence—tiny ripples in space known as gravitational waves—to support one of the last remaining untested predictions of Einstein's theory of general... more
