Physics Nobel Prize 2017 Congratulations to R. Weiss, B. C. Barrish, K. S. Thorne and the LIGO-Virgo Collaboration !

The 2017 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.

The 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 (publication here), 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.
