This artist’s impression shows two tiny but very dense neutron stars at the point at which they merge and explode as a kilonova. Such a very rare event is expected to produce both gravitational waves and a short gamma-ray burst, both of which were observed on 17 August 2017 by LIGO–Virgo and Fermi/INTEGRAL respectively. Subsequent detailed observations with many ESO telescopes confirmed that this object, seen in the galaxy NGC 4993 about 130 million light-years from the Earth, is indeed a kilonova. Such objects are the main source of very heavy chemical elements, such as gold and platinum, in the Universe.

El co-creador de uno de los mayores descubrimientos físicos de Kip Thorne está en Praga. En el pasado, demostró la existencia de ondas gravitacionales. Dio una conferencia llamada Bolzano en Karolinum, organizada por la Sociedad de aprendices ( Učenou) de la República Checa.
