Latest Gravitational wave Stories
Exchange of electromagnetic energy is fairly well understood. The force carrier, the photon, is readily detectable and manipulated, making the physics of electromagnetic radiation easy to study.
In today's Your Universe Today Podcast, we talked with theoretical physicist Dr. Kelly Holley-Bockelmann about mysterious supermassive black holes, which are millions or billions times larger than our Sun.
On today’s Your Universe Today podcast, theoretical physicist Dr. Kelly Holley-Bockelmann is back to discuss facts about black holes and help us separate myth from reality.
In this podcast, Dr. John Millis spoke with Vanderbilt's theoretical physicist Kelly Holley-Bockelmann about how stars die and black holes form.
NASA is pursuing a pioneering technology capable of atomic-level precision to detect gravitational waves or ripples in space-time caused by cataclysmic events, including the Big Bang itself.
Einstein predicted gravitational waves almost 100 years ago. According to his theory, whenever massive objects interact, they produce distortions in the very fabric of space and time that ripple outward across the universe at the speed of light.
Recent research from the University of Cardiff has found that the dying tones of black holes reveal the cosmic crash that caused them to form.
Researchers have confirmed the emission of gravitational waves from the second strongest known source in our galaxy by studying the shrinking orbital period of a unique pair of burned-out stars.
Caltech simulation points out how to detect a rapidly spinning stellar core
- A pivoted catch designed to fall into a notch on a ratchet wheel so as to allow movement in only one direction (e.g. on a windlass or in a clock mechanism), or alternatively to move the wheel in one direction.
