Examples

  • Those ripples can then pass through the space-time that Earth occupies, causing a slight distortion which Advanced LIGO is meant to pick up on.

    Gravitational Waves

  • No one has yet detected such a wave, but in 2001, physicists may catch such a wave at two elaborate systems of mirrors called LIGO, one in Louisiana and one in Washington state.

  • To claim the LIGO is a failure before it has reached its design sensitivity is just as ridiculous and ignorant as criticizing any other tool or piece of equipment for not functioning before it is properly calibrated.

  • “Our study does however show that such systems might exist, and those that have already evolved into a binary black hole might be detected by probes of gravitational waves, such as LIGO or Virgo.”
