They are many and span several engineering and cutting-edge technologies
Advanced Virgo is the major upgrade of the Virgo detector.
Yes, the nature of these two kinds of waves are completely different, even if the generation “mechanisms” are similar.
This optical configuration of Virgo is called a Michelson interferometer and allows the possibility to unveiling tiny spatial deformations,
Gravitational waves are ripples in spacetime that propagate throughout the Universe at the speed of light.
Have you ever imagined to dance around a black hole?
