Astronomers at LIGO (Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory), which is primarily intended to measure gravitational waves, have detected waves based on the collision of two distant neutron stars for the second time.

In September of 2017, LIGO scientists detected gravitational waves – a type of wave created by the collision of two objects. This discovery has since inspired many other researchers to begin working on detecting these waves elsewhere in the universe, and with each new detection the possibility that we may have discovered the elusive ‘dark […]
