Gravitational wave explorer seeks light of merging dead stars
Our Gravitational-wave Optical Transient Observer telescope prototype project was in the news this month, following up a 1-day workshop held in April to introduce the project to the Australian community. Warwick team members Danny Steeghs, Tom Marsh and Krzysztof Ulaczyk made the long trip down under to attend, and Danny introduced the project while Krzysztof discussed his experiences with his previous project, OGLE. The workshop was a big success, attracting attendees and speakers from all over the country, who presented work on a wide range of great transient science — from fast radio bursts to supernovae.
