Post subject:  LIGO Detects Grav. Waves from Binary Black Hole Merger

Now that the physics awards for the spectacular LIGO discovery are being assigned, let me remind you what was announced early this year:

Best read this short summary and notably enjoy the various videos that are linked on the web page about Simulating eXtreme Spacetimes

I like this one in particular (turn up sound)

The simulation of the binary BH merger (that emitted the gravitational waves) was coded by means of the famous Spectral Einstein Code
http://www.black-holes.org/SpEC.html
that is freely available!

++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Do we have some interest in simulating realistic Black Holes and the LIGO scenario in particular???
