Black Holes, Too?! Gravitational Wave Discovery Had Other Surprises!

For the first time in history, scientists have physical proof that pairs of black holes will sometimes circle around each other, collide and mush together to form a single, bigger black hole. This news of binary-pair detection is extremely significant for astrophysicists, but it was somewhat eclipsed by the simple fact that the Large Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory (LIGO) had […]

Gravitational waves detected 100 years after Einstein’s prediction: LIGO opens new window on the universe with observation of gravitational waves from colliding black holes

For the first time, scientists have observed ripples in the fabric of spacetime called gravitational waves, arriving at Earth from a cataclysmic event in the distant universe. This confirms a major prediction of Albert Einstein’s 1915 general theory of relativity and opens an unprecedented new window onto the cosmos.
