    An enigmatic prediction of Einstein's general theory of relativity is gravitational waves. With the observed decay in the orbit of the Hulse-Taylor binary pulsar agreeing within a fraction of a percent with the theoretically computed decay from Einstein's theory, the existence of gravitational waves was firmly established. Currently there is a worldwide effort to detect gravitational waves.   Theoretically predicted over a century ago, gravitational waves were finally detected for the first time in That pioneering feat, accomplished by a huge collaboration of researchers at the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO), involved two distant black holes coalescing into a single black hole – an event that took place approximately billion years ago.

    All of the physics that went into the production of a gravitational wave is then encoded in this ‘music’ for physicists to decode. In the following descriptions of gravitational waves, the ‘sound’ they make will often be described to illustrate the properties of the expected signal. Indeed, while radio astronomers deal with flux levels of Jy, mJy and even μJy, in the case of gravitational wave sources we encounter fluxes that are typically 10 20 Jy or larger. Gravitational wave astronomy therefore is biased toward looking for highly energetic, even catastrophic, events.

    Gravitational waves are predicted by the theory of general relativity. By analogy to electromagnetic waves, which are produced when a charged particle is accelerated, gravitational waves should occur when mass is accelerated. The predicted effect is quite small. Gravitational waves have been observed indirectly from several projects since the s using what is referred to as the Weber bar. The Astrophysics of Gravitational Wave Sources A Workshop at the University of Maryland's Inn and Conference Center April , Workshop Poster (PDF) Hosted by NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center. As the 21st century begins, gravitational wave astronomy is poised to open a new observational window on the universe.

Introduction to the multi-frequency gravitational wave universe, providing an overarching view of the physics and astrophysics of gravitational wave sources with particular emphasis on binary by: That is, the gravitational wave is continuously the same frequency and amplitude (like a singer holding a single note).

That's why these are called “Continuous Gravitational Waves”. Researchers have created simulations of what an arriving continuous gravitational wave would sound like if the signal LIGO detected was converted into a sound.

Gravitational wave science should transform in this decade from a study of what has not been seen to a full-fledged field of astronomy in which detected signals reveal the nature of cataclysmic events and exotic objects.

The LIGO Scientific Collaboration and Virgo Collaboration have recently completed joint data runs of unprecedented sensitivities to gravitational waves.

As with electromagnetic waves, gravitational waves exist because changes in the gravitational field can propagate no faster than the speed of light, and as with electromagnetic waves, the energy carried by the gravitational wave falls-off as the inverse of the distance-squared from the source of the waves.

In GW observations, redshift identification for each GW source is a challenging issue, in particular, for high redshift sources. The use of observed luminosity distance as a distance indicator will be a simple yet optimal way for measuring the clustering signal.

The Gravitational Astrophysics Laboratory (Code ) conducts a broad range of scientific investigations into astrophysical regimes dominated by extreme gravity. The laboratory provides the scientific and technical leadership to develop space-based gravitational wave observatories and includes a mix of theorists and experimentalists.
