Bounding the Speed of Gravity with Gravitational Wave Observations

Bounding the Speed of Gravity with Gravitational Wave Observations

Ripples in spacetime are what gravitational waves are.

There Is Sound In Space, Thanks To Gravitational Waves

Why does gravity move at the speed of light? Newton thought it was instantaneous, but the story is much richer than that!

The field of quantum mechanics all fundamental forces are carried by particles. For instance, light is made up of massless particles called photons that carry the electromagnetic force. Likewise, the graviton is the theoretical particle that would carry the force of gravity. Scientists have yet to detect gravitons, which are tricky to find because they interact so weakly with matter.

Wacky Physics: The Coolest Little Particles in Nature

In the next five years, scientists may find the first proof of gravitational waves — ripples in the fabric of space-time predicted by Einstein's general relativity.

The speed of gravity is taken to be exactly equal to the speed of light. But is that necessarily true? Here's how we know.

In the wake of recent news that astronomers finally detected the space-warping boom of colliding neutron stars, measuring the merging of black holes might seem kind of old hat.
