2015: The year of the missing gravitational waves
This year was not kind to gravitational wave researchers despite multiple experiments across various instruments both on Earth and in space. Gravitational waves are ripples in space-time predicted by Albert Einstein in 1916 using his Theory of General Relativity. He theorized that gravitational waves carry energy away from accelerating masses in the form of gravitational radiation much like photons carry away energy in the form of electromagnetic radiation. But because gravity is 1039 (yes, that’s a thousand trillion […]
