Abstract

The first direct observation of gravitational waves by the interferometer detectors of the LIGO-Virgo collaboration marked the start of gravitational astronomy in 2015, with the observation of a population of coalescing binary stellar black hole systems of large mass, previously unknown. In August 2017 the collaboration was operating three detectors, including the European Virgo. Three detectors are necessary for the identification of the position of the source in the sky. The first gravitational observation of a system of coalescing neutron stars with three interferometers allowed space and ground telescopes to point directly to the source, identifying and the electromagnetic emission associated to the merger of the neutron stars, thus marking the dawn of multi-messenger astronomy.
