  • Gravitational waves: Scientists announce detection of ripples in fabric of spacetime - century's biggest discovery - BelfastTelegraph.co.uk
    Hough said Until you can actually measure something you don t really know it s there I think this is much more significant than the discovery of the Higgs boson This is the biggest scientific breakthrough of the century To say gravitational waves are hard to detect is a gross understatement The Ligo lasers are designed to detect the way a passing wave causes minute changes in the lengths of the pipes This results in the two lasers being slightly out of step creating an interference pattern that can be measured The effect is very very small the equivalent of about one 10 000th the width of a proton the heart of an atom Anything touched by a gravitational wave would be distorted the same way even people But normally the changes are not noticed Gravitational waves are predicted in Einstein s General Theory of Relativity published in 1916 which links gravity to the curvature of spacetime by massive objects They can be produced in different ways for instance by black holes or neutron stars spiralling towards each other on a collision course a titanic supernova or exploding star or even the Big Bang that gave birth to the universe The last possibility raises the prospect of peering behind the veil of the Cosmic Microwave Background CMB a relic of radiation from about 4 000 years after the Big Bang A picture shows a 3km long arm part of the Virgo detector for gravitational waves that is located within the site of EGO European Gravitational Observatory on February 9 2016 between Cascina and Pisa in Tuscany AFP Getty Images A picture shows a 3km long arm part of the Virgo detector for gravitational waves that is located within the site of EGO European Gravitational Observatory on February 9 2016 between Cascina and Pisa in Tuscany AFP Getty Images Gravity waves could allow scientists to see what happened even before the CMB came into being The gravity waves detected by the Ligo team were from two colliding black holes 1 3 billion light years away Professor Martin Hendry head of the School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Glasgow said Einstein s General Theory of Relativity is regarded as one of the most impressive scientific achievements of all time and the existence of black holes is one of the theory s most startling predictions A picture shows a part of the 3km long arm of the Virgo detector for gravitional waves located within the site of EGO European Gravitational Observatory on February 09 2016 between Cascina and Pise AFP Getty Images To see such clear and direct confirmation of this prediction and moreover that the merger of two black holes converts enormous amounts of mass into the energy of gravitational waves is a wonderful vindication of Einstein s masterwork a century after it was written Another Ligo scientist Professor Gabriela Gonzalez from Louisiana State University compared the achievement to that of the 16th century pioneer of modern astronomy Galileo Galilei She said It s monumental like Galileo using the telescope for the first time The Ligo project involved 1000 scientists and cost an estimated 620 million dollars 429 million After 25 years success came barely a week after the facility underwent a 1 million upgrade to make it more sensitive Even then it took months of careful checking of the data before the researchers felt confident enough to announce the news The measurements had very specific characteristics that were exactly what would be expected from two colliding black holes Prof Reitze Ligo s executive director said Our observation of gravitational waves accomplishes an ambitious goal set out over five decades ago to directly detect this elusive phenomenon and better understand the universe and fittingly fulfils Einstein s legacy on the 100th anniversary of his general theory of relativity Explaining how the gravity waves were generated he asked his audience to imagine two black holes each around 150 kilometres in diameter and each packed with 30 times more mass than the sun Accelerating to half the speed of light they spiralled towards each other until they crashed together and merged It s mind boggling said Prof Reitze The wave front from the event spread out like ripples from a stone thrown into a pond across the vast expanse of the universe When it gets to the Earth the gravitational wave is going to stretch and compress space Prof Reitze added The Earth is jiggling like jello He said This was truly a scientific moonshot and we did it We landed on the moon Not only was it the first time anyone had detected a gravity wave but the discovery also marked the first confirmation of two black holes fusing together Theoretical physicist Professor Kip Thorne from the California Institute of Technology Caltech who originally proposed the Ligo experiment in the 1980s said the detection of gravity waves would make it possible to spot black holes tearing stars apart and perhaps violent phenomena previously unknown to science He added Until now we have only seen spacetime when it s calm We have only seen the surface of the ocean on a calm day when it s quite glassy We have never seen the ocean riled by a violent storm with crashing waves before Dr Ed Daw from the University of Sheffield who has been researching gravitational waves with Ligo since 1998 said Discoveries of this importance in physics come along about every 30 years A measure of its significance is that even the source of the wave two black holes in close orbit each tens of times heavier than the Sun which then collide violently has never been observed before and could not have been observed by any other method This is just the beginning Paying tribute to the UK s contribution to the discovery Professor John Womersley chief executive of the Science and Technology Facilities Council said It has taken 100 years and the combined work of many hundreds of
