Scientists just observed a crash between two neutron stars

It happened over 500 million years ago, but we just felt it happen here on Earth.

On April 25, thanks to the newly reopened LIGO (Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory) scientists observed something spectacular: a ripple in space-time that suggests a collision between two incredibly dense neutron stars.

The interesting part: The collision most likely took place 500 million years ago.
