Previous EGO-Virgo News
While Virgo and LIGO have been undergoing upgrades, the data from the early part of the third observing run of the detectors (from April to September, 2019), have been analysed by researchers to look for signs of continuous emission of gravitational waves from rapidly spinning neutron stars. This makes it possible to set new, clear constraints for future searches.
EGO turns 20! On December 11th, 2000, INFN and CNRS founded the European Gravitational Observatory, giving a home to the pioneering Virgo detector.
.The LIGO, Virgo and KAGRA collaborations have declared that, mainly because of COVID-related issues, the fourth observation period, known as 'O4', will not begin before June, 2022. The three...
The classification and definitive analysis of the 39 events detected by Virgo and LIGO in the third observation period (which ran from April to October 2019) was published today on the ArXiv online archive.
A citizen-science project focussing on the study of the cosmos, in which everyone is called to provide a contribution to the study of gravitational waves, particles and light
EGO, the European Gravitational Observatory was created 20 years ago (11 December 2000) by the CNRS, a French public, scientific and technological institution, and the Italian INFN.
