Gamma-Ray Bursts in the Swift Era


The first satellite dedicated to detecting Gamma-Ray Bursts and following up their afterglows autonomously, Swift has revolutionised research in this area. Some highlights are described below and more details are available from "Gamma-Ray Bursts in the Swift Era", a review by Gehrels, Ramirez-Ruiz & Fox (2009). There is also a BBC webpage about GRBs in general.
