For the first time caught the signal from the merged neutron stars

Впервые пойман сигнал от слившихся нейтронных звезд We are talking about the first ever commit detector LIGO gravitational wave signal from a pair of merged neutron stars.

We are talking about the first ever commit detector LIGO gravitational wave signal from a pair of merged neutron stars.

Earlier this collaboration was recorded three signals from coalescing pairs of black holes, an effect predicted by the General theory of relativity. August 18, astronomer Craig Wheeler from the University of Texas at Austin hinted on Twitter about a new signal with LIGO, which managed to fix the optical component. “New LIGO. Source with optical counterpart. Blow your sox off!”, — he wrote in his Twitter. According to the publication New Scientist, we are talking about the signal from the two merged neutron stars.

The official representative of the collaboration LIGO David shoemaker, who neither confirmed nor refuted the rumors. “It is very exciting nablyudeniy scientific run of O2 (which began in November 2016) will end on August 25. We look forward to at this time to publish updates”, — he said.

It is reported that shortly after there were reports of many optical telescopes, including the Hubble space began to observe the galaxy NGC 4993 130 million light years from us, which are merging neutron stars.
