When LIGO detected gravitational waves from the collision of two neutron stars on 17 August 2017, more than 70 telescopes and observatories operating across the full electromagnetic spectrum trained their sights on the merger and its aftermath. This collection traces the route to that single event, and explores what it means for the future of multimessenger astronomy.
