Researchers at the the Monash Centre for Astrophysics have identified a new concept - 'orphan memory' - which changes the current thinking around gravitational waves. Einstein's theory of general relativity predicts that cataclysmic cosmic explosions stretch the fabric of spacetime.... Continue reading
