The Big Bang explosion in 1947 was the biggest and most powerful of all the explosions that occurred in the universe at that time, exploding an entire galaxy at an energy of about 11 billion electron volts.
And it happened just two years after the first detection of gravitational waves, the signature of the expansion of the universe that is caused by the expansion and contraction of the Big Bang itself.
“We can see the light that came out of that explosion as a red giant,” says Prof Robert Cray of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics.
“This was a massive explosion that could have been seen from Earth for a couple of minutes.
But it was so big that the light just came out in a big, massive bang.”
“We’re going to need a whole new class of telescopes to observe it in the future.”
And it was a big bang, too.
It was only in a few short months after the explosion that the universe was discovered.
The universe was created in an instant, just like the Big One in the Big Bear, Wyoming, where it is thought to have been born.
It is the result of a massive collision between two black holes.
One of these black holes, known as the Schwarzschild black hole, is a big enough to cause a lot of damage to the universe, but it is a tiny one, so it is not as massive as a galaxy, or the Andromeda galaxy, which was formed by two neutron stars colliding.
“The Schwarzschild is a really important binary system,” says Dr Michael Higgs of the University of Edinburgh.
In 1947, Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity was being developed and physicists were working out how to model this “divergent” universe, with some of them working on theories of what happened next. “
But that’s a very small fraction of the matter in the Universe, so we have to go to bigger and bigger objects to get anything we want.”

They were hoping that gravitational waves would help them find this hidden matter, but as they got closer to the Big Big Bang, the universe expanded in a much more general way.
In 1947 the first gravitational wave came through the telescope, as the light from a supermassive black hole in the centre of the galaxy was captured by a radio telescope in Hawaii.
The signal from the black hole was so faint that it was detected with a radio dish in a town in the US called Tungsten Falls, just outside of Seattle.
The signals were then picked up by two telescopes in Italy, one called La Silla, and the other called Cern.
“You know, I had the telescope in Tungensten Falls because I’d always been fascinated by the possibility of looking at a galaxy like this,” says Cray.
“And this was the only time that I could find a telescope in the USA that had a big dish, so I decided to go and try it.”
The first observation was of a faint light from the star M-10-10, which is thought by some astronomers to be the only star in the galaxy.
That light was picked up as a gravitational wave.
“It was the first signal that was detectable,” says Higgs.
But the telescopes picked up the signals so strongly that we could use them to measure the distance to the galaxy, and so that allowed us to get some really important measurements.” “
I didn’t think it was possible to find the gravitational waves with the telescopes in the Northern Hemisphere.
But the telescopes picked up the signals so strongly that we could use them to measure the distance to the galaxy, and so that allowed us to get some really important measurements.”
The next time the signals were detected, they were picked up again by the same telescope in Japan.
This time, the signals had a much stronger signal, with one of them being picked up with a telescope called the Keck telescope.
“That telescope was very sensitive, and we found it,” says Bence.
“So we used the sensitivity of the Keke telescope to pick up the signal.”
And that signal was the gravitational wave that was recorded in the new light.
“They detected the signal from a very faint signal in the Kece telescope, and then they used the Ke-K telescope to detect the signal in a new light, and this was very exciting,” says Gérard Pécres.
“Because the Ke ke Ke telescope had been able to detect this signal before, it allowed us, in theory, to do the measurements.”

When you see a signal in light that is weaker than the signal of the signal you’re looking for, you can say that the signal is missing.”
