Mission to discover hundreds of black holes could unlock secrets of the Universe

14 noviembre 2014

Researchers have made a breakthrough in helping scientists discover hundreds of black holes throughout the universe. When two detectors are switched on in the US next year, scientists hope to pick up the faint ripples of black hole collisions millions of years ago, known as gravitational waves. Black holes cannot be seen, but scientists hope the revamped detectors — which act like giant microphones — will find remnants of black hole collisions.
