Rise of Multi-Messenger Astrophysics

An article entitled “Rise of Multi-Messenger Astrophysics Enabled by Growing Collaborative Infrastructure” by FYI, the science policy news from API, mentions AMON in the context of the recent LIGO/Virgo press event:

“This week’s announcement may also accelerate efforts not built around gravitational wave triggers. The NSF-funded Astrophysical Multi-messenger Observatory Network (AMON) at Penn State University is a computational center designed to correlate “sub-threshold” events, such as neutrino detections and gamma ray influxes, and to relay alerts in the same manner as LIGO alerts. AMON is currently building up its own network of participating institutions.”
