MILWAUKEE _ Scientists at LIGO, Virgo and astronomical observatories around the world announced today the discovery and observations of the collision of two neutron stars. These are the first observations of a cosmic event in both gravitational waves and the more familiar electromagnetic wavelengths (visible, infrared and ultraviolet light, radio waves, gamma rays, etc.). UW-Milwaukee […]
UWM physicists played important roles in the first-ever observation of the explosive collision of neutron stars. The explosion created gravitational waves, but for the first time astronomers observed light from the same source.

Gravity-wave astronomy is giving us a dramatically new way to look at our universe – which is why LIGO – the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory – was awarded this year’s Nobel Prize in Physics. Learn more about LIGO’s discovery and its scientific impact at Patrick Brady’s talk “When Black Holes Collide: Gravitational Waves and the […]
MILWAUKEE _ Long before the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences began deliberations on this year’s Nobel Prize in Physics, scientists at University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee had experienced immense pride in the achievement for which the prize was given – the discovery of gravitational waves by the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO). UWM’s Leonard E. Parker Center […]
The 2017 Nobel Prize in physics was awarded Tuesday morning to Rainer Weiss, Kip Thorne and Barry Barish, but scientists at UWM played important roles in the worldwide effort to detect gravitational waves.
