It has a magnetic field 1,000 times stronger than a typical neutron star and some 100 million times stronger than the most powerful artificial magnets.
The researchers explain both the massive mass of the object and why similar systems aren’t observed using traditional radio astronomy techniques.
The results also confirm 'neutron stars have neutrons in them' — something researchers haven't known for sure till now.
Space Week 2019: After Chandrayaan 2, ISRO's upcoming interplanetary missions to Mars, Venus, the Sun
Among these missions is a mission to the Sun's corona, a second Mars orbiter, and a third mission to the Moon.
Scientists think it might have originated from a neutron star merger 500 million light-years from Earth.
Pulsars are super dense, rapidly spinning neutron stars left behind when a massive star explodes.
Most known elements – from light ones like hydrogen to heavy ones like lawrencium – start in stars.
Luckily for us, the dramatic collision of two black holes took place nine billion light-years away.
Massive stars are particularly important for astronomers because of their enormous influence on their surroundings (known as their 'feedback').
Here is how Indian telescope data helped solve the mystery of high-speed radiation jets emanating from colliding neutron stars
When a pair of super-dense neutron stars collided in a kilonova explosion, bursts of bright flashes of gamma rays, short gamma-ray burst are expected.
The neutron star collision detected by LIGO has left behind a debris field for scientist to comb through
"It's now clear that binary neutron stars are a source of the short gamma ray bursts," though there may be other origins too.
Scientists announce first direct observation of gravitational waves from the merger of two neutron stars
Near-simultaneous detection of the gravitational waves and gamma rays indicate that gravitational waves travel at the speed of light.
LIGO-Virgo detects colliding neutron stars for first time: We are entering new era in observational astronomy, says A Gopakumar
LIGO and Virgo interferometer on Monday announced the first ever detection of gravitational waves from a pair of colliding neutron stars.
Launch of the SpaceX Dragon spacecraft for a commercial resupply mission to the International Space Station on Thursday was scrubbed due to poor weather.
