Q1. Which of the following are among the differences between Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO), a gravitational wave observatory, and astronomical observatories? 1. Unlike astronomical observatories, LIGO cannot see electromagnetic radiation. 2. LIGO doesn't need to be dish-shaped like telescope mirrors or radio dishes. 3. While an astronomical observatory, gravitational wave observatories like LIGO cannot operate solo. Select the correct answer using the code given below: A) 1 and 2 only B) 2 and 3 only C) 1 and 3 only D) All of the above
D) All of the above Three things truly distinguish LIGO from an astronomical observatory: First, LIGO is blind. Unlike optical or radio telescopes, LIGO cannot see electromagnetic radiation (e.g., visible light, radio waves, microwaves) nor does it have to because gravitational waves are not part of the electromagnetic spectrum. Second, LIGO is the opposite of round. Since LIGO doesn't need to collect light from stars or other objects in the Universe, it doesn't need to be dish-shaped like telescope mirrors or radio dishes. Third, LIGO cannot function alone. While an astronomical observatory can function and collect data just fine on its own (some do not, by choice), gravitational wave observatories like LIGO cannot operate solo. The only way to definitively detect a gravitational wave is by operating in unison with a distant twin so that local vibrations are not mistaken for signals from gravitational waves.
