Gravitational-Wave Discoveries Driving the Promise of Multi-Messenger Astronomy
The LIGO detectors have opened for us a new way of studying compact objects in the time domain with direct detections of gravitational-wave bursts from binary mergers of compact objects. I will highlight what current results imply and what we can look forward to in terms of advancing our understanding of the densest objects in nature, their origins and the explosive phenomena they cause.
