Hunting for continuous emission of gravitational waves from neutron stars

While Virgo and LIGO have been undergoing upgrades, the data from the early part of the third observing run of the detectors (from April to September, 2019), have been analysed by researchers to look for signs of continuous emission of gravitational waves from rapidly spinning neutron stars.
