Spin measurements from binary black hole mergers observed by gravitational-wave detectors carry valuable clues about how these binaries form in nature. Theorists have predicted that binaries could be attracted towards special configurations called spin-orbit resonances, where the spin and orbital angular momenta become locked into a resonant plane. The authors find first potential signs of these resonances in gravitational-wave data. more
