The X-ray afterglow of short hard bursts (SHBs) of gamma rays provides compelling evidence that SHBs are produced by highly relativistic jets launched in the birth of rotationally powered millisecond pulsars in merger of neutron stars and/or in mass accretion on neutron stars in low mass X-ray binaries. Gravitational wave detection of relatively nearby neutron star mergers by Ligo-Virgo, followed by far off-axis short GRBs or orphan afterglows of beamed away SHBs with an MSP-like light curve… Expand

The Smoking Guns Of Neutron Stars Mergers
The short hard gamma ray burst (SHB) 170817A that followed the first neutron stars merger (NSM) detected in gravitational waves (GWs) has shown beyond doubt that NSMs produce SHBs. Its low luminosityExpand
