The team hope it will act as a "spotters' guide" to help scientists working with the giant LIGO detectors recognise the right waveforms and reveal the secrets of how black holes orbit into each other and collide.

A worldwide effort is currently underway to achieve the first direct detection of GWs by using kilometer-scale, ground-based laser interferometers such as Advanced Virgo and GEO-HF in Europe, Advanced LIGO in the US and KAGRA in Japan, as well as future space-based antennas, such as the European eLISA/NGO mission.
Other scientists in attendance were theoretical physicist, Stephen Hawking, Jim Peebles from Princeton University, Alan Guth from MIT, Kip Thorne from Caltech, Lisa Randall from Harvard University, Barry Barish from LIGO, the gravitational wave observatory, a bevy of observational cosmologists and Maria Spiropulu from CERN near Geneva, Switzerland.
The existing LIGO detectors - two in Hanford, Washington, and the other in Livingston, Louisiana - have been searching for the waves without success since 2002, in partnership with the GEO600 detector in Hanover, Germany, and the Virgo detector in Cascina, Italy.
One of the many latest experimental attempts to find the waves that GR predicts is designated LIGO supported by the National Science Foundation.
