LIGO Gravity Detector Detects Second Case of Collision of Two Neutron Stars

Scientists working at the LIGO Gravity Observatory have announced yet another discovery of gravitational waves caused by the collision of a pair of neutron stars. This event is the second in a row when scientists were able to understand the distortion parameters of the space-time continuum and determine with sufficient probability the form of the […]

Astronomers have witnessed a recent collision of two exoplanets

The number of exoplanets, planets orbiting distant stars, significantly exceeds the number of stars themselves, black holes, galaxies and other space objects of larger scales. And if astronomers manage to find traces of collisions of very rare species of stars and black holes, then collisions of exoplanets, leaving behind trails of dusty ruins, should be […]

Astronomers have witnessed the rarest phenomenon – the collision of a black hole and a neutron star

Astronomers engaged in the "hunt" for gravitational waves, with a very high percentage of probability witnessed one of the rarest and most exotic events. On August 14 this year, at 9:10 am GMT, two LIGO gravitational wave sensors in the USA and a Virgo sensor in Italy registered a package of gravitational waves, called S190814bv. […]
