Scientists witness huge cosmic crash, find origins of gold
A violent collision of two super-dense neutron stars in a distant galaxy has helped astronomers uncover cosmic secrets, including where gold comes from.

Telescopes on every continent were able to see and measure light and energy emerging from the crash. The collision generated a fierce burst of gamma rays and a gravitational wave, a faint ripple in the fabric of space and time, first theorized by Albert Einstein   Read More ...

Hall makes her in turn wry, vulnerable, frustrated, persnickety, brilliant, brooding, angry and loving — she is, in short, a symphony of a person, and Hall plays her like a virtuoso   Read More ...
