Gravity Wave from a Moving Black Hole

June 23, 2010
Gravity Wave from a Moving Black Hole A snapshot of the gravitational wave scattering from a moving black hole, as simulated by researcher Jeffrey Winicour and his coworkers at the Department of Physics & Astronomy, University of Pittsburgh. The singularity is excised from the numerical integration. The vertical axis corresponds to amplitude of the gravitational field. The horizontal axis represents radial distance. Light can't escape from the region (black) inside the "event horizon" of the black hole. This work was performed on a Cray C90. For more information, visit Dr. Winicour's Web page.
