LIGO detects first merger of two unequal-mass black holes

The scientists of Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Laboratory (LIGO) have recently recorded the first merger of black holes that were of unequal masses. On April 12, 2020, the LIGO-Virgo collaboration detected collision between two black holes that were 2.4 billion light years away. The scientists have now concluded from their researches and analysis that these ..

Scientists detect Gravitational waves for second time

Scientists for the second time have successfully detected gravitational waves created by the collision of two black holes 1.4 billion light years away. These waves were detected using the twin Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO) interferometers in the US. This second detection of gravitational waves once again confirms Einstein’s theory of general relativity and successfully ..

For first time Scientists discover Gravitational Waves

Scientist for the first time have discovered Gravitational Waves (GW) that were hypothesised by Albert Einstein in 1916. These waves were detected by the scientists working at two LIGO (Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory) facilities in United States. Key facts LIGO scientists have detected these gravitational waves produced by collision of two black holes located 1.3 ..
