    Photo of an artist's interpretation showing a merger of a black hole and neutron star. The neutron star is in blue, with the rainbow colors representing pieces of the neutron star being torn off by the black hole. In these discoveries, however, the black holes likely swallowed their neutron stars whole because no light was detected in either event. (Illustration by Carl Know, OzGrav, Swinburne University)

    For the first time, researchers have confirmed the detection of a collision between a black hole and a neutron star. In fact, the scientists detected not one but two such […]
