The 80 Ms follow-up of the X-ray afterglow of GRB 130427A challenges the standard forward shock model

GRB 130427A was the brightest gamma-ray burst detected in the last 30 yr. With an equivalent isotropic energy output of 8.5 × 1053 erg and redshift z = 0.34, it uniquely combined very high energetics

An early peak in the radio light curve of short-duration gamma-ray burst 200826A

We present the results of radio observations from the eMERLIN telescope combined with X-ray data from Swift for the short-duration gamma-ray burst (GRB) 200826A, located at a redshift of 0.71. The

A Reverse Shock in GRB 181201A

We present comprehensive multiwavelength radio to X-ray observations of GRB 181201A spanning from ≈150 s to ≈163 days after the burst, comprising the first joint ALMA–VLA–GMRT observations of a

GRB 120729A: External Shock Origin for Both the Prompt Gamma-Ray Emission and Afterglow

Gamma-ray burst (GRB) 120729A was detected by Swift/BAT and Fermi/GBM, and then rapidly observed by Swift/XRT, Swift/UVOT, and ground-based telescopes. It had a single long and smooth γ-ray emission

The 999th Swift gamma-ray burst: Some like it thermal - A multiwavelength study of GRB 151027A
