GW170817: Observation of Gravitational Waves from a Binary Neutron Star Inspiral.
The association of GRB 170817A, detected by Fermi-GBM 1.7 s after the coalescence, corroborates the hypothesis of a neutron star merger and provides the first direct evidence of a link between these mergers and short γ-ray bursts.
A Population of Fast Radio Bursts at Cosmological Distances
The detection of four nonrepeating radio transient events with millisecond duration in data from the 64-meter Parkes radio telescope in Australia indicates that these radio bursts had their origin outside the authors' galaxy, but it is not possible to tell what caused them.
A Bright Millisecond Radio Burst of Extragalactic Origin
A 30-jansky dispersed burst, less than 5 milliseconds in duration, located 3° from the Small Magellanic Cloud is found, which implies that it was a singular event such as a supernova or coalescence of relativistic objects.
PSR 1259-63 : a binary radio pulsar with a Be star companion
The discovery of the first known radio pulsar with a massive, nondegenerate companion is reported. PSR 1259-63, found during a large-scale high-frequency survey of the southern Galactic plane, has a
FRBCAT: The Fast Radio Burst Catalogue
Abstract Here, we present a catalogue of known Fast Radio Burst sources in the form of an online catalogue, FRBCAT. The catalogue includes information about the instrumentation used for the
Gravitational waves from binary supermassive black holes missing in pulsar observations
It is concluded that binary evolution is either stalled or dramatically accelerated by galactic-center environments and that higher-cadence and shorter-wavelength observations would be more sensitive to gravitational waves.
The host galaxy of a fast radio burst
The discovery of a fast radio burst is reported and the identification of a fading radio transient lasting ~6 days after the event, which is used to identify the host galaxy and measure the galaxy’s redshift, which provides a direct measurement of the cosmic density of ionized baryons in the intergalactic medium.
Transformation of a Star into a Planet in a Millisecond Pulsar Binary
This pulsar PSR J1719−1438, a 5.7-millisecond pulsar detected in a recent survey with the Parkes 64-meter radio telescope, is shown to be in a binary system with an orbital period of 2.2 hours.
A real-time fast radio burst: polarization detection and multiwavelength follow-up
Fast radio bursts (FRBs) are one of the most tantalizing mysteries of the radio sky; their progenitors and origins remain unknown and until now no rapid multiwavelength follow-up of an FRB has been
Five new fast radio bursts from the HTRU high-latitude survey at Parkes: First evidence for two-component bursts
The detection of five new fast radio bursts (FRBs) found in the 1.4-GHz High Time Resolution Universe high-latitude survey at Parkes, is presented. The rate implied is 7(-3)(+5) x 10(3) (95 per cent)
