The LIGO project begins a new hunt for gravitational waves

Seven years ago, researchers at the Laser Interferometer Observatory (LIGO) reported the first detection of gravitational waves. Now, the list of gravitational wave candidates is nearly 100.

And astronomers are confident that they can find more of these ripples in the fabric of space-time, which are caused by the acceleration of massive objects – for example, two black holes They spiral towards each other for a catastrophic fusion.
