The hunt to find the source of the gravitational waves detected by LIGO on the sky is only just starting.
Einstein, an accomplished violinist, claimed that, had he not pursued science, he would have been a musician. That's worth reflecting on, in the wake of last week's discovery of gravitational waves.
Music has always played a role in our understanding of the universe. Listening to gravitational waves confirms thousands of years of metaphysical investigation.
There's a good reason you should care about the discovery of gravitational waves, even if you don't understand the science.
The discovery of gravitational waves has ushered in a new era in astronomy and physics. Where will the next big discovery be made? There's no reason for it not to be Africa.
The discovery of gravitational waves involved a team of more than 1,000 scientists from across the globe, including Australia. So how does such an international collaboration work?
It's taken centuries for our understanding of gravity to evolve to where it is today, culminating in the discovery of gravitational waves, as predicted by Albert Einstein a century ago.
The long awaited discovery of gravitational waves has sent ripples through the scientific world. Here top experts respond to the historic announcement.
Sometimes big research news bypasses the usual scientific publishing process. Here's why that's not good for scientists or the public.
Here's a LIGO insider's description of how he got the news of a phenomenon that had first been theorized 100 years ago.
The detection of gravitational waves is the final confirmation of Einstein's theory of general relativity, and opens up a new window into the cosmos.
It takes something as stupendous as the merger between two black holes to generate detectable gravitational waves. Here's how such incredible cosmic objects form.
If you understand how a trampoline works, you'll be able to understand what gravitational waves are.
It is the physics discovery of the century – even bigger than the Higgs Boson. Here's how it happened and what it means, by a key member of one of the lead teams
A glimpse inside a truly extraordinary experiment.
Our panel of experts speculate on which of science's biggest questions could be answered in the coming months.
From a flyby of Pluto to the search for extrasolar planets and gravitational waves, 2015 was a monumental year for space news.
Why the LISA pathfinder mission, just about to launch, could revolutionise astronomy forever by giving us a completely new window into the universe.
On the journey to discovery with the 'gifted mentor' Takaaki Kajita, one of this year's Nobel Prize winners, from some one who studied with him.
A new study has failed to find evidence of gravitational waves, but that doesn't mean Einstein was wrong about their existence.
