Neutron stars colliding forms black hole by NASA

A video uploaded on to YouTube by NASA Goddard has only accumulated 306,003 views in 7 days, this video shows two neutron stars colliding with each other and its end result is the formation of a black hole.

The two super-dense neutron stars are part of a supercomputer simulation by scientists created by NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, the two stars start ripping into each other and what you see at the end is astonishing.

This is what you call a cataclysmic cosmic merger event leading to a black hole in space, the two neutron stars are approximately 11 miles apart from each other, and the stars are about the size of a small city with the dense miscellany of a brutal supernova explosion.

NASA reports one of the stars is around 1.7 times heavier than the sun; the other one is about 1.4 times the mass of the sun.

In the video below you will see the two stars spiralling around each other, then all of a sudden the stars start to merge ripping each other apart. The smaller star is over powered by the larger star leaving the smaller one getting crushed, you can clearly see the distance between them reducing.

The NASA video below is amazing and well worth watching – Are you impressed with the neutron stars forming a black hole?
