‘Observing explosions across the Universe with the Swift spacecraft’
The Swift satellite was designed to detect and follow-up Gamma-Ray Bursts, the brightest explosions in the Universe since the Big Bang. Since its launch almost 10 years ago, Swift has revolutionised research into GRBs and other high-energy transient sources. I will introduce the mission and highlight some of the fantastic results obtained over the past decade.
