The gravitational signal from this merger event travelled for 800 million years through the universe and arrived at the network of two advanced-LIGO detectors – at Hanford, Washington and Livingston, Louisiana, USA and the advanced-Virgo detector in Cascina, Italy, in the wee hours of August 15 2019, just past 2.40 am IST.

Named GW190412, the merger was collectively detected on April 19, last year. The highly-sensitive signals were detected using Laser Interferometer Gravitational wave Observatory (LIGO) and Virgo, located in the US and Italy, respectively.

Gravitational waves -- ripples in the fabric of spacetime -- leave behind plenty of "memories" that could help detect them even after they have passed, according to a study.

The position of the binary black holes, located by the LIGO and VIRGO observatories, were spotted 2.5 billion light-years from Earth, and identified with a precision of 39 square degrees.

Gravitational wave telescopes have been able to find evidence of the merging of smaller black holes since 2015, by measuring the strong bursts of gravitational waves that are emitted when binary black holes merge.

Einstein's understanding of gravity, as outlined in his general theory of relativity, predicts that all objects fall at the same rate, regardless of their mass or composition.

NASA scientists have said that the gravitational waves detected last year from the collision of two stars has created the lowest mass black hole known to man.

Scientists believe that gravitational waves can soon be found using artificial intelligence, saying that deep learning algorithms could better help determine these waves.

New evidence has shown researchers that the neutron star merger, which helped conclusively detect gravitational waves, is releasing more complex radiations then previously imagined.

After the detection of gravitational waves, scientists now want to accurately measure the Universe's age through it.

Scientists finally detected gravitational waves, the ripples in the fabric of space-time that Einstein predicted a century ago.
