Physics: Location counts in search for waves

Nature 474, 7349 (2011). doi:10.1038/474009b

Massive objects such as orbiting neutron stars can bend the Universe’s flexible space-time fabric, generating gravitational waves. Four wave detectors are expected to be operational on Earth by 2016. However, having an additional detector in the right place could double or even quadruple the expected
