Since September 2015, LIGO/Virgo have detected 50 gravitational waves, including 39 new ones just from the first half of O3. This graphic illustrates the current total number and masses of LIGO/Virgo black hole and neutron star merger events (in blue) compared with previously known black holes (in purple). Mergers are indicated by arrows connecting two progenitor objects with a final merged object of higher mass. Credit: LIGO-Virgo / Northwestern U / Frank Elavsky & Aaron Geller
