When Stars Collide: A Neutron Star Death Spiral

“An international research collaboration, including four Northwestern University astronomers, is the first to detect the spectacular collision of two neutron stars in a nearby galaxy using both gravitational waves and light.” (source: LIGO-Virgo/Northwestern)

We had the honor and joy of working with a group of amazing Northwestern astrophysicists to help tell the story of this field-changing discovery!   More information and videos are available on  the LIGO-Northwestern website.
