'Listening' to black holes form with gravity waves

Posted by K R on

New technology that breaks the quantum measurement barrier has been developed to detect the gravity waves first predicted by Einstein in 1916. Professor David Blair was one of 800 physicists from around the world who announced a breakthrough in measurement science last month. "Gravitational wave astronomy is going to be the new astronomy that's likely to really revolutionise our understanding of the universe," he says. "It will allow us to listen to the big bang and to black holes forming throughout the universe. "These are detectors that can allow humanity to explore the beginning of time and the end of time."
