The collision of two neutron stars has been seen by astronomers for the first time, in both gravitational waves and light.

Amongst many interesting aspects to this cosmic event is that is has finally settled the debate about where gold and platinum come from. Another amazing fact is that; "Neutron stars are the smallest, densest stars known to exist: about 12 miles wide, with a teaspoon of neutron star material having a mass of about a billion tons. The core is a soup of pure neutrons, while the crust is smooth, solid and 10 billion times stronger than steel."
