New technology that breaks the quantum measurement barrier has been developed to detect the gravity waves first predicted by Einstein in 1916.
Professor David Blair was one of 800 physicists from around the world who announced a breakthrough in measurement science last month.
"Gravitational wave astronomy is going to be the new astronomy that's likely to really revolutionise our understanding of the universe," he says.
"It will allow us to listen to the big bang and to black holes forming throughout the universe.
"These are detectors that can allow humanity to explore the beginning of time and the end of time."
According to current theory, time began with the big bang and ends in black holes.
The new equipment has allowed the physicists to break the quantum measurement barrier, defined until recently by Heisenberg's uncertainty
David Blair led a team of 16 physicists in Western Australia along with 800 physicists from around the world who announced the breakthrough in a paper
just published in the journal Nature Photonics. END QUOTE:
This really is a big deal. The most perfect detector mankind has ever made...Gravity waves which can now be detected and measured...so many questions
that are discussed here at ATS might actually have hard science answers in our life times...
