The numerical relativity breakthrough in 2005 has provided waveforms of the gravitational wave signal emitted by a compact binary sources that describe the coalescence, the merger of the two compact objects and the ring-down of the newborn object. 273 more words
We all know that gravity is the attractive force between all massive bodies. It’s why the apple that supposedly inspired his groundbreaking account of the fundamentals of physics hit Sir Isaac Newton on the head way back in the 17th century. 965 more words
