Parkes observations for project P456 semester 2020OCTS_04

The Parkes Pulsar Timing Array (PPTA) project has three primary goals: (a) detection of gravitational waves from astronomical sources, (b) establishment of a pulsar timescale, and (c) improvement of our understanding of Solar-system dynamics. The PPTA is the oldest of three international pulsar timing groups. We have the smallest telescope and the ... more

P456 - A millisecond pulsar timing array

Gravitational waves are a prediction of Einstein's general theory of relativity. Despite many searches over several decades and much current effort, there has never been a direct detection of these waves. Such a detection would open up a window into presently unobservable phenomena such as orbiting black holes in the cores of distant galaxies. Puls... more
