ligo: The collision of a pair of neutron stars, marked by
 ripples through the fabric of space-time and a flaslh
 brighter than a billion suns, has been witnessed for
 the first time in the most intensely observed
 astronomical event to date.
 The sequence, in which the two ultra-dense stars
 spiralled inwards, violently collided and, in all
 likelihood, immediately collapsed into a black hole,
 was first picked up by the US-based Laser
 Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory
 (Ligo). It's probably the first observation of a black
 hole being created where there was none before.
 Gravitational waves were first directly detected two
 years ago, proving Albert Einstein's theory of general
 relativity. Those gravitational waves were the result
 of two black holes colliding, and the signal lasted for
 only a fraction of a second. Because black holes
 don't emit light, these waves were invisible and only
 "heard" as thumps
 This discovery of two neutron stars colliding to
 create the same type of waves, in addition to light,
 allowed astronomers to study gravitational waves in
 a new way. The signal lasted for 100 seconds,
 providing them with even more data and insight. It
 revealed that light and gravitational waves travel at
 the same speed.
 Previously, scientists had speculated that the sheer
 force of neutron star collisions would be enough to
 force extra neutrons into the nuclei of atoms, forging
 heavy elements like gold and platinum, but until now
 this idea was purely theoretical.

 neutron star collisions," Dave Reitze, executive
