Remembering C V Vishveshwara, the black hole man of India

Published At: 2017-01-20 22:27 -
Professor C. V. Vishveshwara, who passed away in Bangalore recently, was one of the true pioneers of black hole physics. His notable contributions include the proof of the stability of Schwarzschild black holes and the discovery of quasi-normal modes of black holes.

Marking an eventful beginning of Gravitational Wave Astronomy

Twin LIGOs detect another Binary Black Hole merger

Published At: 2016-06-15 22:15 -
While the celebrations for the first detection of gravitational waves are still ringing down, we are excited to announce the observation of yet another binary black hole merger by LIGO. On December 26, 2015 at 09:09AM IST the LIGO detectors in Hanford, Washington and Livingston, Louisiana detected a signal from the coalescence of two black holes, with masses 14 and 8 times the mass of the sun, merging into a more massive, rapidly rotating black hole that is 21 times the mass of the sun. The event happened 1.4 billion years ago, lasted in LIGO's frequency band for about a second and released about 1 solar mass worth of energy in that short period. For comparison, only a tiny fraction of the sun's mass gets converted to light in its entire lifetime, which is enough to keep the earth warm for billions of years.
