The Virgo collaboration and the LIGO Scientific Collaboration report the three-detector observation of gravitational waves. This result highlights the scientific potential of a global network of gravitational wave detectors, by delivering a better localization of the source and access to polarizations of gravitational waves.

The website of the 5th ELiTES meeting (Final meeting) is online:

The meeting will be held at the Delegation of the European Union to Japan, in Tokyo, and at Toyama University, in Toyama, Japan, from the 8th to the 10th of January, 2017.

During the first day of meeting, it will be hosted a public lecture by Takaaki Kajita (Nobel Prize in Physics in 2015).

Yes, we did it again!

The gravitational wave signal generated by the coalescence of a second binary system of black holes has been detected the 26 December 2015 by both of the twin Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) detectors, located in Livingston, Louisiana, and Hanford, Washington, USA.

The discovery of GW151226 was made by the LIGO Scientific Collaboration (which includes the GEO Collaboration and the Australian Consortium for Interferometric Gravitational Astronomy) and the Virgo Collaboration using data from the two LIGO detectors.

The early stage researchers of the GraWIToN project fully participated to the scientific activities related to this new fundamental discovery. What a exciting period and what exciting project!
