The researchers now reportedly intend to develop an upgrade of the detector and to extend their reach “to even higher frequencies, where no other experiments have looked before.”
A pair of mysterious signals has been detected via a “tabletop gravitational wave detector” designed by scientists from the University of Western Australia, Science Alert reports.
According to the media outlet, while it wasn’t immediately clear what these signals are or where they come from, one of the possible causes could be high-frequency gravitational waves, which “have never been recorded before,” with the detector in question being made specifically to detect such waves.
