A team of researchers at Monash University has taken part in the detection of gravitational waves from a pair of merging neutron stars. The result is likely to be remembered as one of the biggest astronomical discoveries of the 21st century.
In an outstanding achievement recognising the work on Gravitational Waves, the 2017 Nobel Prize for Physics has been awarded to three American physicists for their leading roles in the first detection of the waves.
An international team of researchers led by a Monash astronomer has created the longest consistent 3D model of a neutrino-driven supernova explosion to date, helping scientists to better understand the violent deaths of massive stars.
A new telescope for detecting optical signatures of gravitational waves has officially launched in La Palma. The project, built and operated by international researchers, is partly funded through the Monash Warwick Alliance, an award-winning global partnership between Monash University and the University of Warwick.
