  • The LIGO-Virgo Collaboration has announced the detection of GW170817 and has associated it with GRB 170817A . These signals have been followed after 11 hours by the optical and infrared emission of AT 2017gfo. The origin of this complex phenomenon has been attributed to a neutron star-neutron star (NS-NS) merger. In order to probe this association we confront our current understanding of the gravitational waves and associated electromagnetic radiation with four observed GRBs originating in… CONTINUE READING
