Challenge question solution
First Detection of Gravitational Waves
Nuclear Physics Challenge Question
On September 14th, 2015 LIGO announced the first detection of a gravitational wave. This was hailed at the time as the dawn of gravitational wave astronomy. However that’s only true if the we ever detect another gravitational wave. Now we have. On December 26th LIGO again observed the merger of two different black holes.
