Astronomers observe the ‘smoking gun’ of an orphan gamma-ray burst afterglow

A team of astronomers led by Benito Marcote (JIV-ERIC)  have found the ‘smoking gun’ of an ‘orphan’ gamma-ray burst afterglow. Gamma-ray bursts are brief, intense flashes of gamma-rays that are difficult to detect. They are believed to be linked to cataclysmic events such as the collapse of a massive star, or the collision and merger of [...]
