Thanks for the link...see, I learned something. In space, no one can hear me scream, but one can hear the screams of colliding black holes and of neutron stars. Very, very interesting. We are not having a bad week at all. Those neutron stars, not so much.

I forget, did the both neutron stars become a new neutron star after the kilonova?

If that is where all the really heavy elements from from, then there must have a been a significant number of these events in the timeline leading up to the formation of our solar system. It is astonishing to think so.
