Researchers are undecided on how to classify the first publicly announced gravitational wave detection from LIGO-Virgo’s third observing run.
We know that Gaia is an amazing instrument to learn more about the Milky Way. Well, it turns out it could also be used to detect gravitational waves!
LIGO-Virgo open public alerts give you a chance to listen in to the latest discoveries as they happen – in real time! For instance, you can follow astronomers getting closer to figuring out where the dividing line lies between neutron stars and black holes.
Have you ever wondered how you could build an atom out of a black hole and some bosons? Why of course you have!
Neutron star mergers are incredible events! Come hear Professor Daniel Kasen talk all about them on Monday, January 6th at 4:40 PM at #AAS235!
We’ve seen supernovae, but what’s a kilonova? Professor Brian Metzger will tell us all about these high energy events in his talk at #AAS235.
