Proposal to include the Einstein Telescope in the ESFRI roadmap presented

The proposal to include the Einstein Telescope, a pioneering third-generation gravitational-wave (GW) observatory, in the 2021 update of the European Strategic Forum for Research Infrastructures (ESFRI) roadmap has been submitted. The ESFRI roadmap describes the future major research infrastructures in Europe.

The conceptual design of the Einstein Telescope has been supported by a grant of the European Commission. Now a consortium of European countries and of research institutions and universities in Europe has officially submitted the proposal for the realisation of such an infrastructure with the political support of five European countries, Belgium, Poland, Spain and The Netherlands, led by Italy. The European Gravitational Observatory (EGO) in Italy constitutes its transitional headquarters. The ET consortium brings together about 40 research institutions and universities in several European countries, including also France, Germany, Hungary, Norway, Switzerland and United Kingdom.

Virgo and LIGO unveil new and unexpected black hole populations


Virgo and LIGO have announced the detection of an extraordinarily massive merging binary system: two black holes of 66 and 85 solar masses, which generated a final black hole of around 142 solar masses. The remnant black hole is the most massive ever detected with gravitational waves. It lies in a range of mass within which a black hole has never before been observed, either via gravitational waves or electromagnetic observations, and may help to explain the formation of supermassive black holes. Furthermore, the two initial black holes, if they arose from stars, lie in a mass range within which their presence is considered, in theory, impossible, and may therefore help to improve our understanding of the final stages of the lives of massive stars.

LIGO y Virgo revelan nuevas e inesperadas poblaciones de agujeros negros


LIGO y Virgo han anunciado la detección de un sistema binario extraordinariamente masivo fusionándose: dos agujeros negros de 66 y 85 masas solares, que generaron un agujero negro final de alrededor de 142 masas solares. El agujero negro remanente es el más masivo jamás detectado con ondas gravitacionales. Se sitúa en un rango de masas en el que un agujero negro no ha sido observado nunca antes, ni a través de ondas gravitacionales ni con observaciones electromagnéticas, y podría ayudar a explicar la formación de agujeros negros supermasivos. Además, los dos agujeros negros iniciales, si surgieron del colapso de estrellas, se sitúan en un rango de masas en el cual su presencia se considera, en teoría, imposible, y podría por tanto ayudar a mejorar nuestra comprensión sobre las etapas finales de la vida de las estrellas masivas.
