Tabletop experiment could detect gravitational waves
(Phys.org)—A coin-sized detector might observe gravitational waves before the giant Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO), according to two Australian physicists.
Not much force: Researchers detect smallest force ever measured
What is believed to be the smallest force ever measured has been detected by researchers with the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) and the University of California (UC) Berkeley. Using ...
Black hole trio holds promise for gravity wave hunt
The discovery of three closely orbiting supermassive black holes in a galaxy more than four billion light years away could help astronomers in the search for gravitational waves: the 'ripples in spacetime' ...
Big Bang breakthrough team allows they may be wrong
American astrophysicists who announced just months ago what they deemed a breakthrough in confirming how the universe was born now admit they may have got it wrong.
New research shows that gravitational fields around black holes might eddy and swirl
Fasten your seatbelts – gravity is about to get bumpy. Of course, if you're flying in the vicinity of a black hole, a bit of extra bumpiness is the least of your worries. But it's still surprising. The ...
Tricking the uncertainty principle
(Phys.org) —Caltech researchers have found a way to make measurements that go beyond the limits imposed by quantum physics.
Blogger claims BICEP2 team acknowledging possible error in discovery of evidence of gravitational waves
Pair of noted physicists contemplate future of cosmology after detection of primordial gravitational waves
Researchers suggest changes to theories regarding neutron star crust structure
Researchers propose a new way to detect the elusive graviton
(Phys.org) —Among the four fundamental forces of nature, only gravity has not had a basic unit, or quanta, detected. Physicists expect that gravitational force is transmitted by an elementary particle called a graviton, ...
