Latest Gravitational wave Stories
U.S. physicists say they've determined the crusts of neutron stars are 10 billion times stronger than steel or any other metal alloy found on Earth. The scientists said a neutron star is a star that collapsed when its core ceased nuclear fusion.
Research by a theoretical physicist at Indiana University shows that the crusts of neutron stars are 10 billion times stronger than steel or any other of the earth's strongest metal alloys.
Cardiff University researchers who are part of a British-German team searching the depths of space to study gravitational waves, may have stumbled on one of the most important discoveries in physics according to an American physicist.
In a move that would have any astrophysicist scratching his head, the US Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) commissioned a report to assess whether gravitational waves could threaten national security.
For decades it was baffling. Out of the still night sky, astronomers peering through their telescopes would occasionally glimpse quick bursts of high-energy light popping off like flashbulbs at the far side of the universe.
By Kevin Sieff, The Brownsville Herald, Texas Jun. 17--Ten years ago, the University of Texas at Brownsville and Texas Southmost College lacked even a basic physics department.
ESAâ€™s orbiting gamma-ray observatory, Integral has revealed a new population of exotic and dusty binary stars which might represent a brief evolutionary period in a binary starâ€™s life. The findings bring to light a gap in our knowledge of the formation and evolution of such binary star systems.
New information about the heart of one of the most famous objects in the sky -- the Crab Pulsar in the Crab Nebula -- has been revealed by an international team of scientists searching for gravitational waves.
The future of fundamental physics research lies in observing the early universe and developing models that explain the new data obtained.
The U.S. Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatories (LIGO) is getting a $205 million upgrade by the National Science Foundation (NSF). Dubbed the "Advanced LIGO Project", the upgrade will enable the new field of gravitational wave astronomy.
