Latest Gravitational wave Stories
An international group of scientists says it has defined the energy density of gravitational waves created immediately after the birth of the universe.
On Wednesday, Aug. 19, 2009, the National Science Foundation (NSF) will host a live webcast featuring University of Minnesota Physicist Vuk Mandic.
An astrophysics experiment in America has demonstrated how fundamental research in one subject area can have a profound effect on work in another as the instruments used for the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory
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.
