We might be able to transfer data through gravitational waves

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

Gravitational waves provide dose of reality about extra dimensions

The earlier discovery of gravitational waves from colliding neutron stars was groundbreaking. But it fails to add extra dimensions to our understanding of the universe. A new...

Scientists Finally Calculated The Speed of Gravity

Recently, scientists made groundbreaking detections that allowed them that gravity does not act instantaneously as Newton thought, instead it propagates at the speed of light. Neil...
