We searched for an optical counterpart to the first gravitational wave source discovered by LIGO (GW150914), using a combination of the Pan-STARRS1 wide-field telescope and the PESSTO spectroscopic follow-up programme. As the final LIGO sky maps chan... Read More about Pan-STARRS and PESSTO search for an optical counterpart to the LIGO gravitational-wave source GW150914.
