Astrophysics is giving us a lot to think about today. Recently ( about two months ago) astronomers at Las Cumbres Observatory in Santa Barbara were on of six teams to co-discover a new source of light and localize it to the galaxy NGC 4993, only about 130 million light years away. The scientists detected an outburst, that occurs right after two neutron stars merge, called a kilonova, a phenomenon that had long been considered possible, but never observed — until now. Check at my link below and i hope, you will enjoy this article, as much as I did. I think it is a very important discovery.

I am sure you mean well but this story comes from nature.com then was re-printed by news.ucsb.edu/2017/018415/catch-fleeting-kilonova then re-posted by digital galaxy.com and then re-post by the site you refer to... It’s a cool story, no doubt.
Just make sure you check your sources.
