O2 has started – get ready for new glitches!

LIGO’s second observing run (O2) started this morning – on November 30th 2016 at 8 am, pacific time. Get ready for some new glitches! We’ll have new data from the engineering run (ER10) and the first few days of O2 by the end of the week.

Who knows, maybe there’ll be a gravitational wave in there too!

About mzevin

I am a graduate student studying Physics and Astronomy at Northwestern University. I am part of the LIGO Scientific Collaboration and work with Dr. Vicky Kalogera studying gravitational wave astrophysics. In particular, I'm interested in binary evolution and using gravitational wave detections to determine the environments in which compact binary mergers occur. I received my B.S. from the University of Illinois in Astronomy, Physics, and Music. Outside of school I enjoy teaching science at Chicago’s Adler Planetarium and Kids Science Labs, playing music around the Windy City, and looking up.
