Gravitational Wave Detection
In 2015, over 1000 physicists heard gravitational waves for the first time. These waves were predicted by Albert Einstein in 1916, the gravitational wave detector was originally theorised by American physicist Richard Feynman in 1950.
Australian international gravitational observatory
AIGO, located in Gingin, Western Australia, provides data and instrumentation analysis on gravitational wave detection technology. AIGO, in collaboration with OzGrav, works closely with researchers around the world and the detectors that detected the very first observation of this pulse of energy and therefore proved the existence of these waves.
gravitational wave detection
Gravitational waves are detected with an instrument called an interferometer. An interferometer users a laser and mirrors; a laser beam is split into two and then recombined. When a gravitational wave is detected, the two lasers will recombine at different times.
