Gravitational waves could be leaving persistent traces of their passing

Gravitational waves are 'ripples' in space-time caused by some of the most violent and energetic processes in the Universe. Transient in nature, some scientists...

Illuminating the dark matter with gravitational waves

Using Laser Interferometer Space Antenna (LISA), a team of astronomers at the University of Zurich have observed gravitational waves emitted by black holes. These shock...
This image provides three different perspectives on GRB150101B, the first known cosmic analogue of GW170817, the gravitational wave event discovered in 2017. At center, an image from the Hubble Space Telescope shows the galaxy where GRB150101B took place. At top right, two X-ray images from NASA's Chandra X-ray observatory show the event as it appeared on January 9, 2015 (left), with a jet visible below and to the left; and a month later, on February 10, 2015 (right), as the jet faded away. The bright X-ray spot is the galaxy's nucleus. Credit: NASA/CXC

All in the family: Kin of gravitational wave source discovered
