The horizons merge just before diagram (c), to form a single, dumbbell-shaped
horizon. The rotating dumbbell emits gravitational waves, which carry away its
deformation, leaving behind a smooth, spinning, Kerr black hole in diagram (d). [

not entirely lost. A record has been kept: It has been encoded in the ripples of
spacetime curvature that the coalescing holes emitted. Those curvature ripples
are much ...

But gravitational waves – ripples in the fabric of space and time – are unrelenting, passing through barriers that stop light dead.

According to Einstein's theory of gravitation, the white dwarfs are spiraling toward
each other because they're losing energy in the form of gravitational waves—
invisible ripples in spacetime that cause objects with mass to bob up and down.
Tod Strohmayer of NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., and
his colleagues calculate that the white dwarf twosome, dubbed RX J0806.3+
1527, is pouring out 100 times as much energy in the form of gravitational waves
as the ...

Most significant, gravity waves are made of the very stuff out of which black holes
are made — spacetime curvature. The trick is to detect the ripples of spacetime
curvature and decode the message in the ripples as these ripples pass us.
Although their strength where they originate is prodigious, likely to cause a
stretch and squeeze that could easily kill a human being (& Chapter 4), they are
very weak indeed by the time they reach the earth, and almost impossible to
detect. The effort to ...

Introduction. Gravitational waves are ripples of spacetime generated as masses
are accelerated. It is one of the central predictions of Einsteins' general theory of
relativity but despite decades of effort these ripples in spacetime have still not
been observed directly. Yet we have strong indirect evidence for their existence
from the excellent agreement between the observed inspiral rate of the binary
pulsar PSR1913+16 and the theoretical prediction (better than 1% in the phase
evolution) ...

Note first that it will not do work for a conservative substantivalist. For such a
substantivalist, the condensate exists in Neo-Newtonian spacetime, and fields
and test particles are low-energy ripples in the condensate. However, the
relativistic inertial structure experienced by the ripples is not that possessed by
Neo-Newtonian spacetime: According to Claim (3), it consists of the properties of
the ripples themselves.21 An intrepid substantivalist may on first glance fare a bit
better: Claim (3) ...

Similarly, the prediction by the general theory of gravitational radiation— literally
ripples in spacetime— was once viewed with great skepticism. Today, however,
most theoreticians believe that such radiation exists and that its detection from
astronomical sources is merely a matter of time and improved instrumentation.
Still, not everybody agrees; certainly not Visser (1994b), who calls the possibility
of time machines "extremely disturbing" and an "unfortunate happenstance" and

This entire galaxy was its garden, and it tended its plot with great care and
attention. Still, something was going terribly wrong, and it was by no means
certain that the remedies that it had applied would be successful. The Gardener
was a creature whose substance consisted of subtle twists and ripples in
spacetime, spread over vast distances. Like every one of its kind, it had been
brought to life in the formation of the supermassive black hole at the center of the
galaxy, taking its form, ...
