[HTCondor-users] Congratulations to the LIGO team!

A hearty congratulations to the LIGO team for their groundbreaking enablement of multi-spectral observation of merging neutron stars!

For the first time, gravitational waves from the merger of two neutron stars has been detected and its source has been visually observed with telescopes. The LIGO and Virgo collaborations first detected the gravitational waves on Aug. 17, 2017, and the sky coordinates of its source were then studied by several observatories around the world.
