(planned gravitational wave detector in India)

LIGO-India is a planned Gravitational Wave (GW) detector to be built in India, to compliment LIGO in the US. Additional detectors confirm detections, which is useful since the detectors pick up a lot of noise signal. It also offers information regarding the direction of the source. As the third LIGO detector, it allows the triangulation to a single spot in the Celestial Sphere rather than merely to a great circle.
