What happened in the first instants after the Big Bang?

One of the biggest science stories of 2014 came out of the BICEP2 cosmic microwave background polarization experiment. Last spring, the BICEP2 researchers announced they had measured something known as B-mode or tensor-mode polarization, a particular twisting of light that is the hallmark of primordial gravitational waves. 312 more words

Gravitational Waves Or Galactic Dust?

Earlier this year scientists announced they had made a mind-boggling discovery – they had finally identified gravitational waves originating from the beginning of the universe. However, it turns out these well-wishing researchers could have been fooled by space dust. 594 more words

The Universe

Apollo astronauts left an array of seismometers to study moonquakes. Now astrophysicists are scouring the data for evidence of gravitational waves

One of the great unanswered questions in science is whether the universe is filled with gravitational waves and if so, whether we can spot them. 191 more words


Finding gravitational waves in stars? Now thats an old idea...

Despite the apparent setback in the search for gravitational waves conducted earlier this year, a different team of scientists are hoping for better success with predictions overlooked since 1916. 536 more words
