LIGO Discovery Featured in UWM Research Magazine

Posted by DK on February 23, 2018

Work by the CGCA in the Nobel-prize winning discovery of gravitational waves from colliding black holes and the subsequent discovery of multi-messenger emission from colliding neutron stars is featured in the 2018 UWM Research Magazine.

The 2018 UWM Research Magazine features an article describing the role of the CGCA in the discovery of gravitational waves from colling black holes in 2015, work which was awarded the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics.

The article also discusses the role of the CGCA in the multi-messenger (gravitational waves and various wavelengths of light) discovery of colliding neutron stars in 2017.
