One way to solve the dark matter problem is to chalk it up to black holes formed moments after the big bang, but they can’t account for all the dark matter
The gravitational wave event from August still has surprises in store. Its light is three times brighter now, which may change how we think of gamma ray bursts
The collision that produced recent gravitational waves may have left behind the biggest neutron star ever seen. But it might have collapsed into a black hole
Detecting gravitational waves has given us a new way to observe the universe by listening to ripples in space-time. Here are five of the biggest finds from LIGO

The physicist Asimina Arvanitaki is thinking up ways to search gravitational wave data for evidence of dark matter particles orbiting black holes. The post Mining Black Hole Collisions for Hints of the Elusive Axion appeared first on WIRED.
About 1.4 billion years ago, the universe gave scientists a Christmas present. The post LIGO Has Detected Gravitational Waves for the Second Time appeared first on WIRED.
In order to use LIGO for astronomy, you need to know the location of the source of the gravitational waves. Here's how that works. The post LIGO Ain't a Gravitational Wave Detector—It's an Observatory appeared first on WIRED.
The path from a revolutionary set of equations to the detection of gravitational waves was strewn with obstacles and controversy.
