The horizons merge just before diagram (c), to form a single, dumbbell-shaped
horizon. The rotating dumbbell emits gravitational waves, which carry away its
deformation, leaving behind a smooth, spinning, Kerr black hole in diagram (d). [

not entirely lost. A record has been kept: It has been encoded in the ripples of
spacetime curvature that the coalescing holes emitted. Those curvature ripples
are much ...

According to Einstein's theory of gravitation, the white dwarfs are spiraling toward
each other because they're losing energy in the form of gravitational waves—
invisible ripples in spacetime that cause objects with mass to bob up and down.
Tod Strohmayer of NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., and
his colleagues calculate that the white dwarf twosome, dubbed RX J0806.3+
1527, is pouring out 100 times as much energy in the form of gravitational waves
as the ...

Most significant, gravity waves are made of the very stuff out of which black holes
are made — spacetime curvature. The trick is to detect the ripples of spacetime
curvature and decode the message in the ripples as these ripples pass us.
Although their strength where they originate is prodigious, likely to cause a
stretch and squeeze that could easily kill a human being (& Chapter 4), they are
very weak indeed by the time they reach the earth, and almost impossible to
detect. The effort to ...

Introduction. Gravitational waves are ripples of spacetime generated as masses
are accelerated. It is one of the central predictions of Einsteins' general theory of
relativity but despite decades of effort these ripples in spacetime have still not
been observed directly. Yet we have strong indirect evidence for their existence
from the excellent agreement between the observed inspiral rate of the binary
pulsar PSR1913+16 and the theoretical prediction (better than 1% in the phase
evolution) ...

Sobel versteht es meisterlich, die Stimmen von Galileo und seiner Tochter in ihre Erzählung einzuweben. Und sie führt uns die wohl dramatischste Konfrontation von Kirche und Wissenschaft vor Augen, die es in der Geschichte gegeben hat.
