Physics Nobel Prize
has been attributed to Rainer Weiss, Barry C.
Barish, and Kip S. Thorne for the observation of gravitational waves, a
discovery announced on February 11th, 2016.
ANTARES Collaboration congratulates their pioneering work, and the
LIGO-Virgo Collaboration for this award.
The ANTARES Collaboration was happy to participate to the follow-up of GW150914
the first gravitational wave signal ever detected, and to the search for
neutrinos from the similar signal
GW151226 and candidate event LVT151012
Note that in the forthcoming days the publication detailing the ANTARES
analysis concerning the binary black hole coalescence GW170104
will be released.
