Upgraded Gravitational-Wave Detectors observe seven new signals within a Month


The seven gravitational wave candidates seen during the first month of the new science run are described on the Gravitational Wave Candidate Event Database (GraceDB)


Just a month into a new observing round after significant improvements, gravitational-wave detectors have already used ripples in space-time to pinpoint seven potential collisions of cosmic proportions — including one that might be the first-ever black hole found merging with a neutron star.
