How fast is the universe expanding? Scientists may soon find an answer as a new study reveals the rate of the universe's expansion could potentially be measured by gravitational waves from black holes and neutron stars.
Powerful gravitational waves are capable of kicking out supermassive black holes from the center of a galaxy.
A research from the Institute of Computational Cosmology of the Durham University found out through testing that they might be able to study the seeds of supermassive black holes by reading gravitational waves caused by collisions of black holes.
Scientists have said that LIGO's first detection of gravitational waves from two merging black holes is 12 billion years in the making, and there will be thousands of collisions to occur in the future.
Scientists from LIGO has detected a second batch of gravitational waves from two colliding black holes, disproving a previous assumption that collisions produce bursts of radiations.
ESA successfully completed an experiment using the Laser Interferometre Space Antenna (Lisa) Pathfinder.
There are strange hazy streaks on Pluto's atmosphere and NASA has recently discovered what's been causing these. NASA's New Horizons probe has captured the said layers that looked like water ripples.
A team of researchers, scientists, and engineers from Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) announced last February the discovery of tiny ripples in space and time caused by two merging black holes, as theorized by Einstein, using a pair of giant laser detectors.
After proving the existence of Einstein's gravitational waves, researchers has once again discovered something that is not expected-light bursting from the collision of two black holes.
Scientists from the University of Warwick and Monash University have brought astronomers one step closer to proving the existence of gravitational waves with their recent study, published in The Astrophysical Journal.
Three closely orbiting supermassive black holes have been discovered billions of light years away. Groups like this are theorized to be the source of gravitational waves in the Universe, according to the theory of General Relativity.
