Four new gravitational waves detected from black hole mergers

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.

Signs of supermassive black hole mergers found

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.


Albert Einstein's gravity theory passes extreme test: Study

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.

Gravitational wave event likely signaled birth of black hole: NASA

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.

AI may help search for gravitational waves: Study

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

Afterglow from neutron-star merger continues to brighten

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


Gravitational waves used to measure age of universe

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

Gravitational wave detector to be built in India by 2025

A LIGO detector, capable of detecting gravitational waves, will soon be constructed in India, and will be run by a consortium, including the IITs and the Inter-University Centre of Astronomy and Astrophysics.

Gravitational waves from black hole collision detected

Energy equivalent to about one solar mass was emitted as gravitational waves during the collision of black holes seven and 12 times the mass of the Sun.

Edges of spiral galaxies like Milky Way could house massive black holes

The outskirts of spiral galaxies like our own could be crowded with colliding black holes of massive proportions, says a study led by an Indian-origin researcher.
