LIGO and Virgo continue their observation run
On November 1st at 15:00 UTC, the LIGO and Virgo gravitational-wave detectors resumed their search for gravitational waves. All three sites halted operations for the entire month of October to perform some maintenance and upgrades.
“The LIGO and Virgo detectors provide us with ever more interesting data,” says Prof. Alessandra Buonanno, Managing Director at the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics. “We are currently analyzing more than 30 candidate signals, and I am looking forward to many more interesting discoveries in the months to come.”
