LIGO and Virgo Make First Detection of Gravitational Waves Produced by Colliding Neutron Stars

For the first time, scientists have directly detected gravitational waves—ripples in space and time—in addition to light from the spectacular collision of two neutron stars. This marks the first time that a cosmic event has been viewed in both gravitational waves and light. The discovery was made using the U.S.-based Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO), … Continue reading “LIGO and Virgo Make First Detection of Gravitational Waves Produced by Colliding Neutron Stars”
