Gravitational waves offer insights into galaxy evolution and mergers

Charlottesville VA (SPX) Apr 07, 2016

New results from NANOGrav – the North American Nanohertz Observatory for Gravitational Waves – establish astrophysically significant limits in the search for low-frequency gravitational waves.

This result provides insight into how often galaxies merge, and how those merging galaxies evolve over time. To obtain this result, scientists required an exquisitely precise, nine-year pulsar-monito —> Read More
