Researchers at RIT’s Center for Computational Relativity and Gravitation (CCRG) contributed to the first direct detection of a gravitational wave signal reported by the LIGO and Virgo scientific collaborations on February 11, 2016, 10:30AM.
Six RIT scientists are among the authors of an upcoming paper in Physical Review Letters, which confirms the existence of gravitational waves predicted in Albert Einstein’s general theory of relativity. Their years of research in the fields of gravitational wave data analysis and numerical relativity contributed to the discovery.
