IFAE joins the VIRGO collaboration

The detection of Gravitational Waves (GWs) from a black hole (BH) binary merger by LIGO in 2015 is a milestone that represents the beginning of a new era in the exploration of the universe. Shortly after the addition of the VIRGO antenna into the network lead to the detection of the neutron star (NS) binary merger that could be followed in electromagnetic signals, and thus represents the beginning of multi-messenger astronomy. These events have radically changed the stage for several areas of physics, from astrophysics to particle physics.

Virgo is a giant laser interferometer designed to detect gravitational waves. It is operated in Cascina, near Pisa on the site of the European Gravitational Observatory (EGO), by an international collaboration of scientists.

Cosmic fireworks from a new gamma-ray binary

A joint observational campaign with the MAGIC telescopes at the Observatorio del Roque de los Muchachos (Garafía, La Palma) and the VERITAS array at the Fred Lawrence Whipple Observatory (Tucson, Arizona), has detected a new source emitting very-high-energy gamma rays from an unusual system consisting of a massive star and a pulsar. The study has just been published in the prestigious Astrophysical Journal Letters.

Estallidos cósmicos en un nuevo sistema binario de rayos gamma

Una campaña conjunta de observación, realizada con los telescopios MAGIC del Observatorio del Roque de los Muchachos (Garafía, La Palma) y la red VERITAS del Observatorio Fred Lawrence Whipple (Tucson, Arizona), ha detectado una nueva fuente emisora de rayos gamma de muy alta energía procedente de un inusual sistema formado por una estrella masiva y un púlsar. El estudio acaba de ser publicado en la prestigiosa revista Astrophysical Journal Letters.
