Electromagnetic counterpart to gravitational wave emission detected

On the 16th of October 2017 two press conferences have announced an historical discovery: the simultaneous detection of gravitational waves and electromagnetic waves from a gamma-ray burst. The event, caused by the merger of two neutron stars, marks the beginning of a new era: the era of gravitational wave astronomy.
