LIGO and Virgo make first detection of gravitational waves produced by colliding neutron stars

LIGO and Virgo make first detection of gravitational waves produced by colliding neutron stars For the first time, scientists have directly detected gravitational waves — ripples in space-time — in addition to light from the spectacular collision of two neutron stars. This marks the first time that a cosmic event has been viewed in both [...]
