The formal test programme has begun on the technologies required to detect gravitational waves in space.
Scientists are set to make a major announcement Thursday on efforts to pinpoint the existence of gravitational waves, or ripples of space and time that transport energy across the universe.
The pull of gravity on a distant star can now be measured more accurately, shedding light on other worlds, say astronomers.
It appears that runners may be running wrong all this time. A slightly different posture could let runners and walkers get a gravity-driven boost and could potentially break world records, reports New Scientist.
Researchers at the European Space Agency harness the natural lensing properties of cosmic gravity to get a closer look at a black hole.
Clooney stars as a burned-out engineering genius in the film to be released next week, just in time for the summer blockbuster season.
