Swinburne University of Technology astronomers are engaged in a quest to discover the most elusive waves in the universe—Einstein’s gravitational waves—using the largest ‘instrument’ imaginable: an array of burnt-out giant stars that are spinning hundreds of times a second. A joint international project between Swinburne, the CSIRO and the universities of Manchester and Cagliari, the researchers plan to find signals from the fast-twirling pulsars to detect and study these waves.
