Astronomy & Astrophysics Seminar

Abstract:

I will review the updated set of observations of the neutron star merger GW170817. Then I will discuss the current understanding on whether this type of events are the main sources of r-process elements in the Universe and on whether they are the long sought after progenitors of short gamma-ray bursts.
