So according to this press release short gamma ray bursts can be tied to neutron star collisions and/or black hole/stellar companion collisions.
I was curious if anyone knew if LIGO had any results that lined up with the data mentioned in the paper? Or are these GRB sources too far away to produce a measurable gravity wave?
This burst was too distant for LIGO to pick up, however:
Well that’s hopeful considering that back in 1997 LIGO expected to
It’ll make it that much easier if the upper bound turns out to be realistic.
