Title Gravitational waves and neutron stars: Why this discovery is huge Degree of recognition National Media name/outlet ABC News online Media type Web Country Australia Date 24/10/17 Description Gravitational waves have been in the news a lot lately.
Two weeks ago, the Nobel Prize in Physics went to three of the leading scientists behind the 1,000-strong international project which first detected these miniscule ripples in the fabric of space-time.
That first ever detection was back in 2015; the fourth ever detection was announced last month.
Now an international team of scientists has detected gravitational waves from a new source: the cataclysmic collision of neutron stars, the smallest and densest stars in the universe.
