The Future of Gravitational-Wave Astronomy

2016 Apr 4--8, Bangalore

On 2016 February 11, the LIGO-Virgo collaborations jointly announced the discovery of gravitational waves. The signal, produced by the collision of two black holes in the distance universe, was detected by two LIGO observatories on 2015 September 14. This confirms a major prediction of Einstein’s general theory of relativity and opens a new observational window onto the universe.

LIGO Opens New Window on the Universe with Observation of Gravitational Waves from Colliding Black Holes

Indian Scientists make significant contributions and aspire for more

For the first time, scientists have observed ripples in the fabric of spacetime called gravitational waves, arriving at the earth from a cataclysmic event in the distant universe. This confirms a major prediction of Albert Einstein’s 1915 general theory of relativity and opens an unprecedented new window onto the cosmos.

Applications invited for the LIGO-IndIGO Summer Students Program

Published At: 2016-01-09 12:54 -
LIGO Laboratory at California Institute of Technology hosts a 10-week summer student research program every year, called the LIGO SURF Program. Considering the imminent possibility of the LIGO-India project, LIGO has graciously agreed to host a few talented and motivated undergraduate students from Indian institutions, pre-selected by IndIGO, as part of this program.
