One of the most katakliżi events in the universe has been discovered despite barely made the turn from the ground.
An international team, including Australian scientists, discovered wrinkles in space and time, called gravitational waves, a & # 39; black tracks holes formed a new black hole about 80 times greater sun of the largest known collision.
Although the collision occurred nine & # 39; billion years ago were only ripples on the floor the last year, and was not found until this year. The discovery, announced Tuesday, is the most recent success, and one of the largest, for Gravitational Wave Observatory Interferometru Advanced Laser (LIGO).
The team discovered the gravitational waves crash over from floor 29 & # 39; July 2017, followed by three other small unions & # 39; black hole in & # 39; August, 2017, by re & # 39; analyze the data before it was captured by Advanced LIGO.
The discovery brings the total number of & # 39; detected & # 39; fusion & # 39; Black holes 10, along with & # 39; collision & # 39; neutron stars, over the past three years. Professor Susan Scott of the Australian team says it spent & # 39; the majority of his career hoping to identify gravitational waves and advances in technology have finally give scientific answers.
This event also had black holes chose the fastest of all the associations observed in the & # 39; and now is the most remote unity in the universe ever observed, Prof Scott said.
"We can not see these events with & # 39; any other way except through & # 39; gravitational waves, because they emit radio waves or light … because they are black holes", said AAP.
The binary systems, meaning two black holes orbiting each other, eventually cut together and disseminate strong gravitational waves that are very bad when they reach the ground, said Prof Scott, the Center of & # 39; Excellency the Austrian Council Research for Gravitational Wave Discovery (OzGrav). The discoveries will improve scientists' understanding of how a track systems & # 39; a black hole in the universe and the range of their masses and how fast spin while merging, she said.
The researchers plan to use technology & # 39; LIGO to identify katakliżi events even more space, with hopes to reach back to the beginning of time. The next observation to collect the data starts early next year, after working for the gravitational wave detector is more sensitive. Prof Scott will present recent results at the Australian Institute of Physics Congress in & # 39; later Perth this month and discovery will be published in & # 39; Physical Review X f & # 39; a later date .
"This should be the biggest announcement in the entire congress … is the peak of my career", she said.
