Will we be able to prove this important, 100-year-old theory wrong?
A team of scientists hope to trace the origins of gamma-ray bursts with the aid of giant space 'microphones'.
Astronomers have developed what they are calling a “spotters guide” to black holes that could help scientists better detect the faint ripples of gravitational waves caused by black holes colliding millions of years ago.
What is believed to be the smallest force ever measured has been detected by researchers with the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) and the University of California (UC) Berkeley.
A new research program is bringing experts together to help protect our planet from asteroids that could become catastrophes.
Giant black holes throughout the universe sometimes pair up and merge, sending out gravitational waves that ripple across space and time. Albert Einstein predicted that these waves exist, but scientists have yet to directly detect one.
One of the many counterintuitive and bizarre insights of quantum mechanics is that even in a vacuum—what many of us think of as an empty void—all is not completely still.
The optical bench of the LISA Pathfinder (LPF) mission passed with flying colors extensive testing at the Institute for Gravitational Research (IGR) at the University of Glasgow.
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.
Imagine navigating through a grocery store with your cell phone. As you turn down the bread aisle, ads and coupons for hot dog buns and English muffins pop up on your screen. The electronics industry would like to make such personal navigators a reality, but, to do so, they need the next generation of microsensors.
