This Neutron Star Merger is Glowing in a Seriously Weird Way

Last August, a collaboration between the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) and the Virgo observatory in Italy detected gravitational waves from a neutron star merger that occurred about 138 million light-years away. New research suggests that the collision of these two collapsed star cores is still surprising scientists.

Observations from NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory, published Thursday in a study in Astrophysical Journal Letters, reveal how utterly unusual the...
