amp;nbsp;Those different scenarios produce different sets of gravitational
She said the journey of gravitational
waves starting from Newton had reached its optimal level in the time of Einstein.
wave signal was emitted from the collision of two neutron stars 130 million lightyears from Earth.
Professor B S Sathyaprakash, also of the School of Physics and Astronomy, said: "The first discovery of gravitational
waves took weeks before we could confirm it, but this event was truly a 'eureka' moment.
When two neutron stars collide, there are two consequences theorists have predicted: The stars would generate the elements heavier than nickel and iron on the periodic table, and emit gravitational
waves as they spiral inward.
Such an achievement would allow experts to better pinpoint the origin of gravitational
waves and therefore pursue further studies into gravity itself.
waves are ripples in space-time that propagate outward from intensely violent and energetic processes in space.
Black holes are regions so dense with matter that not even photons of light can escape their gravitational
A team of astronomers recently announced their observations of these gravitational
ripples in the fabric of spacetime that have, at long last, reached Earth from their distant origin--an ancient catastrophic event in a remote region of the universe.
mergers and how gravitational
waves are possible during such events.
The search for gravitational
waves has been the centre of current research in Astronomy and Cosmology.
After Pakistan-born scientist Dr Nergis Mavalvala made waves for being a member of the team of scientists that discovered gravitational
waves (ripples in space and time hypothesised by physicist Albert Einstein a century ago), it has emerged another Pakistani was also part of the team.
