“Squeezing Spacetime” –LIGO Researchers End-Run Nature to Detect Gravitational Waves

  Intrepid researchers at MIT and Caltech have done what was thought impossible: an end run around nature. They have finessed spooky quantum vacuum –the ground state of energy for the Universe and the source of all potentiality– without violating the laws of nature that will allow the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO) to detect … Continue reading “Squeezing Spacetime” –LIGO Researchers End-Run Nature to Detect Gravitational Waves
