The best way to understand how gravitationalwaves work is to see it in action. For the past 25 years, the LIGO/Virgo collaboration has been searching for gravitational waves. These waves are so incredibly small that they can’t be seen with the naked eye, but the LIGO/Virgo team has been monitoring these waves and analyzing them over the past four years.
As you might expect, the LIGOVirgo team has been able to detect gravitational waves with very high confidence, and they’re able to confirm that the waves are coming from a binary system (a black hole and a normal star) and that the two are traveling at about the speed of light.
The team has also been analyzing the waves to see if they are produced by some exotic physics. The LIGOVirgo team has concluded that the waves are not produced by a binary black hole system, but they’re also not sure about this.
Its not clear if these waves are coming from a binary black hole system, or if they are something much more exotic. While the LIGOVirgo team has come to the same conclusion as scientists at the Max Planck Institute, who made similar observations in 2001, they don’t know to what extent. The LIGOVirgo team expects that they will find more information in months after the merger if they continue to observe.
These waves are from a binary black hole system, but the team expects the LIGOVirgo collaboration to learn more about them in months after the merger if they continue to observe.
Theoretically, the LIGOVirgo team hopes to “see” the waves by the end of 2012.
The LIGOVirgo team has also been busy looking for gravitational wave sources in the universe, and they have found two. They have been looking at the gravitational waves expected from a merging black hole system. And they have also been looking for gravitational waves in the universe.
The LIGOVirgo team is hoping to see the gravitational waves emitted from a merging black hole system. This would lead to gravitational waves that are very much like the ones we’re used to, but would be from a far, far closer source. The team believes that the gravitational waves will be the first hint that we’re dealing with a truly exotic form of matter.
This would be a real eye-opener. In a few months, this type of detection would be a thing of the past. A lot of the things we’re hoping to find are likely to be a few orders of magnitude away from the “real thing,” but if we can see them, we should be able to figure out what’s really going on.
The team is making a few preliminary assumptions: they think that the gravitational waves will be coming from a massive black hole, and that these waves are somehow a product of the black hole swallowing up a huge amount of matter. The source could be other black holes, or even a star’s implosion.
