Latest Virgo interferometer Stories
Measuring at the limits of the laws of nature – this is the challenge which researchers repeatedly take up in their search for gravitational waves.
An international group of scientists says it has defined the energy density of gravitational waves created immediately after the birth of the universe.
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.
