Synopsis: Off-axis jets from neutron star merger (Physics)

For decades, astronomers have debated the origin of short gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) coming from distant galaxies. The mystery appeared to be solved when researchers saw gamma rays accompanying the neutron star merger detected in 2017. However, the gamma-ray signal was unusually faint for a short GRB, and the afterglow’s brightness at frequencies ranging from radio to x rays unexpectedly increased in the weeks following the merger. Using computer models, Davide Lazzati, of Oregon State University in Corvallis, and colleagues show that the 2017 observation is consistent with a canonical short GRB viewed at an oblique angle.
