Follow-up of Gravitational Wave sources with LCO

 Back to Global Sky Partners


With the advent of the latest generation gravitational wave detectors (Advanced LIGO and Advanced Virgo), dawn is breaking on multi-messenger astronomy. The detection of gravitational wave sources when accompanied by a companion source seen in "traditional" electromagnetic telescopes would bring breakthroughs in a huge range of astrophysics as well as fundamental physics. This project will bring this process into schools around the world using LCO's unique network of telescopes.
