### First measurement of gravitational waves of colliding neutron stars

More than 100 years after Albert Einstein’s formulation of the general theory of relativity and more than 30 years after the first discovery of a binary neutron star system, gravitational waves of colliding neutron stars have been detected for the first ...

### The first catalogue of cosmic collisions

After the first direct observation of a gravitational wave signal in autumn 2015, numerous further detections of gravitational waves were made in the following years. From these data, scientists have compiled a catalogue of cosmic collisions. The GWTC-1 ...

### Einstein’s Nobel heritage

Einstein's theories of relativity are the foundation for much of modern physics - small wonder that there is a sizeable number of Nobel prizes related to relativity. Here's a list with brief descriptions of the most important ones: 1921 - Albert ...

### A brief history of gravitational lensing

Einstein's derivation of the deflection of light in the Sun's gravitational field, and the agreement between the quantitative prediction for that deflection based on his theory of general relativity and the observations made by an expedition under the ...
