Thrilled physicists and astronomers announced Monday the first-ever observation of the merger of two neutron stars, one of the most spectacular and violent phenomena in the entire universe.You're left with an extremely exotic object, this neutron star.A neutron star typically would have a mass that's perhaps half a million times the mass of the Earth, but they're only about 20 kilometers across (about the size of London).Q: What happens then?A: Because we don't understand exactly the mechanics of how these neutron stars work on the interior, it's not certain what the final fate is.That may be stable and stay as a neutron star forever, or it may be unstable and eventually collapse into a black hole.
