    Yes! So many problems to be resolved with a single observation set!

    Many thanks for all the reports.

    Seems to confirm the worthiness of the Nobel choice in spades. A new page in the annals of discovery.

    This is an excellent detailed description of some of the results. Very interesting that no neutrinos were detected!

    I was forwarded this link to a good video overview of the event. Thought I'd share. No headaches are involved.

    I was at the IAS Show on Saturday and the speaker mentioned that something would be mentioned today but he was not allowed to talk about.
    Today, the media here showed the videos similar to others here but left me confused by saying they had imaged the location and showed galaxy NGC 4993. Not clarifying that the galaxy has always looked like that to us alive, leaving one to believe the gravitational waves had caused its appearance !! - It didn't, did it!!

    There was also a GRB in that galaxy in August!! GRB 170817A. I find that interesting

    Since NGC 4993 was discovered in 1789 by Wm Herschel, it certainly didn't!
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NGC_4993

    Note that the Wikipedia page has been swiftly updated to show the discovery images for this event.

    There was also a GRB in that galaxy in August!! GRB 170817A. I find that interesting
    It's the gamma ray counterpart of the gravitational wave event and it certainly is interesting!

    Hello not_Fritz,

    that's a great event and discovery.
    Today, I have seen a short coverage on the TV, coming from MPI in Munich, and your links offer even better videos,
    and more infos.
    How should we rate the importance of this discovery?, like the discovery of the microwave background radiation?,
    like the discovery of the photo effect?

    Thanks,
