LIGO will resume work in 2023 and will capture gravitational wave signals weaker than ever

After two years of upgrades, the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) is almost ready for its next operational run, which will begin in March 2023.

During this fourth run (O4) LIGO– which consists of two detectors, one in Washington and one in Louisiana – will be joined by two other gravitational wave observatories: the Virgo interferometer in Italy and the Kamioka Gravitational Wave Detector (KAGRA) in Japan.
