Scientists have detected black holes gobbling up neutron stars, marking the observation of collisions between the two most extreme objects in the universe for the very first time. Read more about how scientists spotted the rare cosmic event.

Within a 10-day time frame, a team of over 1,000 international scientists spotted the rare cosmic event twice using the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory in the U.S. and the Virgo gravitational-wave observatory in Italy, They published their findings, originally documented in January 2020, on Tuesday in The Astrophysical Journal Letters
