The equation-of-state of cold asymmetric (neutron-rich) matter at supra-nuclear densities is a long-standing open question. It cannot currently be calculated from first principles theory (QCD), nor can it be directly probed by terrestrial experiments. Astrophysical detections of merging neutron stars (NSs) provide a unique opportunity to study this equation-of-state. In this talk I will describe recent progress obtained by utilizing both gravitational-wave and electromagnetic observations of NS mergers. An overview of different methodologies and results will be given, their strengths and caveats will briefly be discussed, as will the future outlook for this newly emerging field.
