The third generation telescope for the detection of gravity waves will appear in Europe in 2030s, which will be named after Albert Einstein. The new device will operate with data the volume of which will exceed the current volumes in thousands of times – as a result, Einstein telescope will be able to capture about a million gravity waves per year.
When scientists first recorded the gravitational waves in 2015, Earth science has opened something like a “window into the universe”, which will allow mankind to comprehend the incredible mysteries of the universe. Now astronomers continue to improve methods of observation of gravitational waves.
In order to make a leap in the study of gravity waves, scientists need a new powerful telescope. It is being developed by a consortium that has brought together more than four dozen leading scientific institutions in Europe. It is expected that the Einstein telescope will be ten thousand times more sensitive than the existing Deva and Lirgo.
So far, scientists have not decided on the specific place of construction of the telescope – the decision will be made by 2023. Now two places are being considered – the Maas Rhine region on the border between the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany, and Sardinia (Italy). It is known that the telescope, which will be located 300 meters underground, will be able to register about one million gravity waves per year.
