Thanks to gravitational waves, we have detections of black holes mergers. Now imagine they are embedded in AGN disks, can you guess what’s going to happen to them? The authors of today’s paper can tell you if your guess was correct!
We haven’t yet detected microhertz gravitational waves. This unusual detector could change that.
The latest LIGO-Virgo catalog presents a new set of ‘standard siren’ events that can be used to study the cosmic history of our universe. Read more…
The European Pulsar Timing Array recently released the results of their latest gravitational wave search. Here’s what they found.
In the latest of our #UndergradResearch series, read about Katherine Zine and Blaise Veres’ work with NANOGrav’s Quicklook software, which allows them to quickly look at pulsar observations
Astronomers might have another tool for follow-up observations of merging neutron stars.
