Astronomers for the first time caught two gravitational waves in a day

This opening will force experts to reconsider the system of assignment to these phenomena of names. Scientists for the first time recorded for one day two sets of the fluctuations of space time generated by couples of black holes at once. About it the astronomer Christopher Berri noted on Twitter page. "Until I slept, LIGO and VIRGO caught two splashes in gravitational waves, S190521g and S190521r at once. If it is confirmed, then we should change a technique of assignment of names to similar events", - he told. Now on Earth there are only two installations which are capable to catch gravitational waves. The first of them - LIGO - was created in 2002. It is based on the projects and plans developed by Kip Thorne, Rainer Weis and Ronald Drever at the end of 1980. Oh my! New candidate gravitational wave while I was asleep #S190521r
False alarm rate 1 per 100 yr (boom)
If real, yes you've guessed it, binary black hole
Rating: — Christopher Berry (@cplberry) May 21, 2019 A the second gravitational observatory is ViRGO which was created a bit later. It began to work in 2003, initially conceding to the first in sensitivity. However later, having endured modernization, it approached the LIGO level. Earlier it was reported that scientists found the abnormal star formed because of merge of two white dwarfs. News from the Correspondent.netv of Telegram. Subscribe for our channel
