Abstract: On 2017 August 17 a binary neutron star coalescence candidate (later designated GW170817) with merger time 12:41:04 UTC was observed through gravitational waves by the Advanced LIGO and Advanced Virgo detectors. The Fermi Gamma-ray Burst Monitor independently detected a gamma-ray burst (GRB 170817A) with a time delay of ∼ 1.7 s … Show more

“…Rapid optical follow-up by our Dark Energy Camera (DECam) program (Flaugher et al 2015), starting just 11.4 hr after the GW trigger, led to the discovery of an associated optical counterpart in the nearby ( » d 39.5 Mpc; Freedman et al 2001) galaxy NGC 4993 (Allam et al 2017;Soares-Santos et al 2017). This optical source was independently discovered by several groups (Abbott et al 2017b), and first announced as SSS17a by Coulter et al (2017aCoulter et al ( , 2017b. The source has also been independently named DLT17ck Yang et al 2017) and AT2017gfo.…”

“…We observe UHECR particles, and two scenarios are viable to explain them, with probably both realized in nature [52]: one is based on the relativistic jets and their shock waves in radio galaxies (e.g., [46]), and the other on Gamma Ray Bursts (GRBs) and their relativistic jets. Both sites of origin may involve mergers of black holes or neutron stars [51,53], or the ab initio formation of black holes. In a series of papers by Mannheim, Falcke and Markoff (e.g., [43,54,55]) it has been shown that at a distance of order 10 3.5 to 10 5 Schwarzschild radii from a central black hole a reconfinement shock system occurs, starting the routine jet flow (e.g., [56,57]).…”

“…Desde então, mais 4 eventos similares foram detetados, na verdade, em frequências audíveis para um humano [7][8][9] . Em agosto do presente ano foi anunciada a observação de ondas originadas na fusão de duas estrelas de neutrões, e, simultaneamente, também a observação de radiação gama e no visível 10,11 .…”
