A mysterious gravitational wave is currently circulating in space.
But its origin is still a mystery, and its nature remains to be discovered.
We spoke to the lead author of the study, Dr. Steven Jones, to get the lowdown on what is known about this rare event and how it might affect the future of astrophysics.
Scientific American: What is gravitational wave?
The term gravitational wave refers to a type of gravitational wave, when two or more objects, known as black holes, merge.
These black holes are so huge that they have a gravitational field that is as big as our sun.
If a black hole is at the center of a galaxy, and there is a certain amount of matter there, the gravity of the black hole will pull all that matter into the galaxy, which will eventually merge with the rest of the galaxy.
The most common explanation for this phenomenon is gravitational lensing, a phenomenon where two or so objects merge into one object.
These two objects will then create a gravitational lens, which is like a lens in the eye of a telescope.
The lens is used to focus our view, so the object we see is not in the center, but rather far away from the center.
The gravitational lens will cause objects to become brighter and brighter.
The idea behind this is that as the object becomes more massive, it also becomes more focused on the galaxy it is in.
As a result, the objects light will focus on the lens, causing it to become much more focused.
This is the cause of gravitational lens-like phenomena known as gravitational wave.
Dr. Jones: Gravitational waves are so rare that they’re very hard to detect.
We have to be extremely careful because of how sensitive we are to gravity.
When the Universe was young, it was much easier to detect gravitational waves, but now they’re so rare we have to constantly be looking for them.
What are the sources of gravitational waves?
Dr. Steven E. Jones, astrophysicist at the University of Texas at Austin: We use gravitational wave data to find the most important gravitational wave sources.
The main sources of these signals are supermassive black holes.
A black hole’s mass is like that of the Sun.
So if it’s at the core of a star, it will weigh more than the mass of the Earth.
These supermassive objects have a much greater gravitational pull than our Sun.
This makes them even more massive.
We know that they contain black holes that are at the very edge of our Galaxy.
We’re only about 400 million light-years away from them, but their gravity is much stronger than our sun’s.
We also know that the Universe’s core is much more dense than our Galaxy is.
We don’t have enough mass to create a black-hole merger.
If we had enough mass, we could create a merger of two black holes in our Galaxy, but that wouldn’t be very efficient because of the massive amount of mass involved.
In addition to black holes and the galaxies that contain them, we also find a lot of neutron stars.
Neutron stars are incredibly dense stars, so when two neutron stars merge, they produce a lot more radiation than a black sun.
The other sources of cosmic gravitational waves are supernova explosions.
These explosions are so massive that they emit gamma rays, which are light that is emitted when something explodes.
The gamma rays are extremely energetic.
They are very different than the light that we see with our eyes.
They’re not visible to the human eye.
But because they’re coming from a very far away source, we can’t see them.
So when these cosmic gravitational wave signals are emitted, they’re not just from black holes but also from neutron stars and other stars that are exploding.
It’s like a telescope looking into the distance.
The last source of cosmic gravity waves we know of is gravitational waves generated by supernova collisions.
In these cases, the gravitational waves don’t seem to be coming from black-holes, they appear to be from supernovae.
But if you think about what happens when you create a supernova, it creates a neutron star, and then you’re left with a neutron, which has a very high mass.
These are the same kind of supernova that are so common that they even make the news in the popular press.
When you create these massive black holes it also creates a lot less matter than if you create an old supernova.
So the mass difference is still very high, but there’s still a lot left to be added to the black-white hole.
These are just the kinds of cosmic signals that we can detect, and we have data coming from telescopes around the world.
But we don’t really know how they’re generated.
Do we really need to search for these signals with telescopes, or do they just appear in our cosmic data?
Dr: Do we need to?
Dr Jones: In the short term, yes.
The reason we can see cosmic gravitational signals with astronomical telescopes is that we know
