Astronomers search for gravitational-wave memory  PHYS.ORG · 3 weeks
Astronomers regularly observe gravitational waves (GW)—ripples in space and time—that are caused by pairs of black holes merging into one. Einstein's theory of gravity predicts that GW, which squeeze and stretch space as they pass, will permanently distort... more
Exotic Binary System Confirms Relativistic Frame-Dragging  SCI-NEWS.COM · 4 weeks
An international team of astronomers has found exciting new evidence for Lense-Thirring precession — an effect of relativistic frame-dragging — after tracking the pulsar-white... more
Calculating Hawking radiation at the event horizon of a black hole  PHYS.ORG · 4 weeks
A RUDN University physicist has developed a formula for calculating Hawking radiation on the event horizon of a black hole, which allows physicists to determine how... more
Space-time is swirling around a dead star, proving Einstein right again  LIVE SCIENCE · 4 weeks
The way the fabric of space and time swirls in a cosmic whirlpool around a dead star has confirmed yet another prediction from Einstein's theory of... more
Astronomers witness the dragging of space-time in stellar cosmic dance  PHYS.ORG · 4 weeks
An international team of astrophysicists led by Australian Professor Matthew Bailes, from the ARC Centre of Excellence of Gravitational Wave Discovery (OzGrav), has shown exciting new evidence for... more
Astrophysicists construct approximations for the metric of spherically symmetric black holes  PHYS.ORG · 4 weeks
RUDN astrophysicists have proposed a new method for approximate calculation of the parameters of spherically symmetric black holes in the Einstein-Maxwell theory. By comparing the shadow... more
