"Gravitational waves, neutrinos and photons"

Zsuzsa Marka, Columbia University

On August 17, 2017 the merger of two neutron stars was detected in the form of gravitational-waves by LIGO/Virgo. As a result of over a decade long preparation for multimessenger observations the event was also seen electromagnetically across the full spectrum. The history and future of the comprehensive multimessenger effort using gravitational-waves, neutrinos, and electromagnetic counterparts will be discussed.
