Cosmic Explosions and Cosmic Accelerators
Astronomical processes, such as supernovae or gamma ray bursts, give off a variety of messenger signals. Astronomers observing these signals can get different information from different signals, and recently, by coordinating their observations of multiple messengers from the same event, they have begun to revolutionize our understanding of the extreme universe. Dr. Regina Caputo will discuss these jointly observed messengers and the contribution of the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope at the forefront of this new era of astronomy.
