New Delhi, Feb 17: In a major boost to Indian science research, the Union cabinet on Wednesday approved a proposal to establish a state-of-the-art gravitatiol wave observatory in India in collaboration with the Laser Interferometer Gravitatiol-wave Observatory (LIGO) in the US. The “in principle” approval for the LIGO-India project for research on gravitatiol waves - a discovery that is regarded as the breakthrough of the century - is piloted by the Department of Atomic Energy and Department of Science and Technology (DST), a press release said. The project will bring unprecedented opportunities for scientists and engineers to dig deeper into the realm of gravitatiol wave and take global leadership in this new astronomical frontier.
