Tiny diamond crystals could be used as an incredibly sensitive and small gravitational detector capable of measuring gravitational waves, suggests new UCL-led research. Predicted by Einstein's general theory of relativity, gravitational waves are ripples in space-time generated by certain movements of massive objects.

An unusual gravitational wave signal is casting new light on the 'mass gap' between neutron stars and black holes. When the most massive stars die, they collapse under their own gravity and leave behind black holes.

A Cardiff University student has found himself at the centre of a major breakthrough discovery that could potentially help to solve a decades-old mystery.

A highly unusual gravitational wave signal, detected by the LIGO and Virgo observatories in the US and Italy, was generated by a new class of binary systems (two astronomical objects orbiting around each other), an international team of astrophysicists has confirmed.

A 50-year-old theory that began as speculation about how an alien civilisation could use a black hole to generate energy has been experimentally verified for the first time in a Glasgow research lab. In 1969, British physicist Roger Penrose suggested that energy could be generated by lowering an object into the black hole's ergosphere - the outer layer of the black hole's event horizon, where an object would have to move faster than the speed of light in order to remain still.
