The LIGO and Virgo scientific collaborations have cataloged ten confident detections from binary black holes and one from binary neutron stars in their first two observing runs, which has already brought up an immense desire among the scientists to study the universe and to extend the knowledge of astrophysics from these compact objects. One of the fundamental noise sources limiting the achievable detector bandwidth is given by Newtonian noise arising from terrestrial gravity fluctuations. It…
