There’s renewed excitement in the scientific world after advanced measuring equipment picked up signals indicating the collision of two black holes some three billion light years away. The discovery came from researchers at the Laser-Interferometer Gravitational wave Observatory (LIGO), who first detected such waves September 14, 2015. This marks the third time the laboratory has detected gravitational waves. Read more in Bowdoin News.
