Title: The Explosive Counterparts of Gravitational Waves (Silent Animation)

Abstract

Astronomy collaborations like the Dark Energy Survey, which Fermilab leads, can track down the visible sources of gravitational waves caused by binary neutron stars. This animation, presented here without sound, takes you through the collision of two neutron stars, and shows you the explosion of light and energy seen by the Dark Energy Camera on August 17, 2017.
