Gravitational-Wave-Detector Events

Phys. Rev. Lett. 20, 1307 – Published 3 June 1968
J. Weber


A new series of experiments is described, involving two gravitational wave detectors spaced about 2 km. A number of coincident events have been observed, with extremely small probability that they are statistical. It is clear that on rare occasions these instruments respond to a common external excitation which may be gravitational radiation.
