Gravitational waves observed for the third time, opening new, unexplored paths in physics


Researchers working at Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO) have confirmed the existence of gravitational waves – again. The ripples in spacetime might usher in a new age in physics. This image shows a numerical simulation of a binary black hole merger with masses and spins consistent with the third and most recent LIGO observation. The image…
