Recent observations with the Chandra X-ray telescope continue to detect X-ray emission from the transient GW170817. In a total exposure of 96.6 ks, performed between March 9 and March 16 2020 (935 d to 942 d after the merger), a total of 8 photons are measured at the source position, corresponding to a significance of about 5 sigma. Radio monitoring with the Australian Telescope Compact Array (ATCA) shows instead that the source has faded below our detection threshold (<33 uJy, 3 sigma). By… Expand
