I've been looking at LIGO figures for gravitational wave sensitivity here and it seem to be displayed in an adimensional strain ratio (which I assume that is more or less equivalent to metric ...
Suppose you wanted to detect gravitational waves from a lab source (I know, any reasonable man-made source will be several orders of magnitude below detection technology, but humor me for a second). ...
What was the major discovery on gravitational waves made March 17th, 2014, in the BICEP2 experiment?
The Harvard-Smithsonian Centre for Astrophysics held a press conference today to announce a major discovery relating to gravitational waves. What was their announcement, and what are the implications? ...
Gravitational waves just have a little interaction with other particles. How can we detect such little influence on mass?
I read that magnetic fields perpendicular to a current shoot out and expand all the way to infinity. Additionally a gravitational wave, no matter how small will also expand to infinity at the velocity ...
Are the gravity waves detectors all working on the same principle/effect ?
This refers to the discussion about gravitational waves for the YouTube video LIGO Gravitational Wave Observatory. I have two questions: When the gravitational wave passes through the space where ...
