A team of scientists hope to trace the origins of gamma-ray bursts with the aid of giant space 'microphones'.

black hole spotters guide
2014-11-17 05:28:01

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.

A new research program is bringing experts together to help protect our planet from asteroids that could become catastrophes.

Revealing New Information On Strength Of Black Hole Mergers
2013-11-08 07:13:10

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.
