An unprecedented cosmic observation.
Gravitational wave detection is going through an even tighter squeeze.
More than a light Venusian breeze.
What we know about the mysterious life cycle of a black hole.
In the December 1980 issue of Popular Science, a 38-year-old theoretical physicist answers the ultimate question about the universe.
All that glitters is a neutron star collision.
Observatories all over the world caught a new kind of collision.
Virgo will help LIGO locate colossal cosmic collisions.
The observatory could eventually detect a new collision every day.
But they get along just fine
A curved line marked the planet's surface for four days
LIGO experiment reports a second successful discovery
Intriguing results from LISA Pathfinder mission
LISA Pathfinder is a precursor to the largest experiment ever, and it's just getting fired up
The original baby boomers
The iconic dual-swirl of black holes colliding is also ideal for soup
From the April 1981 issue of Popular Science: "When scientists finally detect a form of energy they have never seen, they will open a new era in astronomy."
Or at least a few very nerdy websites
A dance of destruction
The 'chirp' would make a great ringtone
They were produced by two merging black holes
If we detect them, it could mean a lot about the universe
If true, the discovery would support one of Einstein's major predictions.
Support for cosmic inflation just deflated a bit
