Tale of binary neutron star merger
Chennai Mathematical Institute.
In this talk, will explain the reason for the excitement related to the recent detection of a binary neutron star merger by LIGO and Virgo detectors and the consequent follow up using several conventional telescopes . This joint set of observations led to many ground-breaking results in astrophysics, fundamental physics and cosmology, which I will explain (at an undergrad level).
