From ground-based detectors like LIGO and GEO600, scientists and engineers are planning to expand the field of gravitational wave detection with space-based observatories like LISA. UK scientists and engineers are making key contributions to make these missions happen.
There are number of ground-based gravitational-wave observatories around the world, from the US to Germany and Japan. Explore where they are, and the roles that UK scientists and engineers have had in their development.
Scientists from all around the world were needed for the detection of gravitational waves to happen – find out how the UK contributed to this historic achievement, and why international collaboration in this field continues to be so important.
A year ago, the world shared in discovery of gravitational waves, thanks to collaborators around the world and in the UK. We explain exactly what gravitational waves are, where they come from and why they are still being hailed as the discovery of the century.
Find out how we are working with others to maximise the efforts for diagnosis and treatment of cancer.
The UK is celebrating 50 years of scientific excellence at one of Europe's leading international research facilities.
