After being alerted to a gravitational-wave event by LIGO and its European counterpart Virgo, thousands of scientists across the globe looked at a patch of sky and saw the aftermath of a neutron star collision, marking the first time such an event has been observed with both gravitational-wave and conventional astronomy.
Discovery marks first cosmic event observed in both gravitational waves and light.
Award honors their "decisive contributions to the LIGO detector and the observation of gravitational waves."
