ESA Euronews: The quest to capture gravitational waves

0
(0)

The LISA Pathfinder spacecraft is due to set off in Autumn 2015 in a bid to prove that it is possible to observe gravitational waves in space. This is the latest step in an incredible journey to spot these ripples in spacetime that were first predicted by Albert Einstein 100 years ago.

If we can manage to capture these waves, then we should be able to observe some of the most violent events in the cosmos, such as black holes colliding and galaxies merging. For the moment, however, we’re still searching.

  1. This month the ESA @euronews (in English) programme investigates gravitational waves and how the LISA Pathfinder mission, due to set off later in 2015, aims to prove that it is possible to observe gravitational waves in space.

  2. (In My Opinion) LIGO will never find gravitational waves as by my understanding EM radiation is affected by the gravitational wave exactly as much as the surrounding geometry of space, It's like drawing a line on a flat piece of paper  measuring it then bending the flat paper and expecting the measurement of the line to change.
