Spacetime ripples from the neutron star smash-up usher in the age of multi-messenger astronomy.
Teaming up with LIGO, Europe’s Virgo detector has bagged its first gravitational waves. The three-observatory detection enabled scientists to better pinpoint the merging black holes’ location.
The European Space Agency switched off its groundbreaking LISA Pathfinder mission this week.
The gravitational-wave detection last year of a neutron star merger has revealed details on neutron star structure, ruling out exotic quark matter in the objects’ cores.
Scientists with the gravitational-wave observatory announce another discovery, this time of a black hole merger twice as far away as previous detections.
A new finding suggests that LIGO’s neutron-star merger was a typical gamma-ray burst after all.
