LIGO Opens New Window on the Universe with Observation of Gravitational Waves from Colliding Black Holes
For the first time, scientists have observed ripples in the fabric of spacetime called gravitational waves, arriving at the earth from a cataclysmic event in the distant universe.

Il libro “Il fantasma dell’universo. Che cos'è il neutrino” dell'autrice Lucia Votano (già Direttore dei Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso) è finalista, ed è stato il più votato dalla Giuria scientifica, al premio Galileo, il più prestigioso nel campo della divulgazione scientifica.
Physicists have started work on a new experiment that aims to measure a very subtle prediction of Einstein's general theory of relativity known as the Lense–Thirring effect. Describing the distortion of space–time by a spinning mass, the effect has previously been measured by NASA's LAGEOS satellites to an accuracy of 10%.
