Neutron Star Collision Led to a Rumble of Gravitational Waves

Scientists have detected ripples in the fabric of space and time from a neutron star collision. They call those ripples gravitational waves. Two neutron stars, each small as a city but heavier than the sun, collided, thus forming a black hole. This powerful event in space threw gravitational waves and light toward our planet....
