Astronomers create early warning system for stellar explosions with citizen-scientist participation

from Astrobites

The entire sky cannot be monitored constantly. So astronomers have created the SuperNova Early Warning System — a worldwide network of neutrino observatories that looks for neutrino showers, the telltale signs that a galactic supernova is about to become visible. The system consists of a network of neutrino detectors connected to a central server at Brookhaven National Laboratory. When a valid signal is obtained by the server indicating a neutrino shower seen by more than one detector, an alert is sent to the SNEWS community, which includes professional and amateur astronomers. Anyone can sign up to be alerted by SNEWS when a supernova is detected. more
