Cabinet Approved LIGO-INDIA Project

Union cabinet approved the proposal for LIGO-India project. LIGO (Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory) - India project is for setting up state-of-the-art gravitational waves observatory in India in collaboration with LIGO laboratory US, ran by Caltech and MIT.

This will further enhance the study of gravitational waves and will provide an opportunity for Indian scientists to do research on this newly opened up astrophysical frontier. Indian industrial houses may also get an opportunity to work with their US counterparts in building 8 KMs long beam tube at ultra-high vacuum on a levelled terrain for the lab.
