Chasing cosmic explosions: The view from an on-call astronomer

Dr Rhaana Starling (Associate Professor of Observational Astrophysics, University of Leicester)
Violent astrophysical events, like stellar deaths and neutron star mergers, are short-lived. The Universe is constantly monitored from Space and from Earth to pick up the initial signal from an event. After that, it’s up to on-call astronomers to act fast to capture further data on the fading embers. We don’t have a clear picture of the nature, physics and environments of many of these transient events, and I will focus particularly on chasing both gamma-ray bursts and gravitational waves.
