(Re)solving the jet/cocoon riddle of a gravitational wave event

An international research team has combined radio telescopes from five continents on 12 March 2018 to prove the existence of a narrow stream of material, a so-called jet, emerging from the only gravitational wave event involving two neutron stars observed so far. The research leading to these results has received funding from RadioNet under the [...]
