Hubble Telescope Records Rare Kilonova Explosion! | REAL IMAGES

In one of our recent post, we talked about how a collision between two neutron stars or a neutron star and a black hole could be catastrophic for the entire universe. Such an event is called a Kilonova or a macronova or sometimes an r-process supernova.

In 2013 Hubble telescope revealed a new type of stellar explosion produced by the merger of two compact objects which were discerned to be either two neutron stars or a neutron star and a black hole. This was perhaps the first time we clearly saw the cosmic objects colliding in a gamma-ray burst, but the first Kilonova was quite possibly observed in 2008.

Let’s look at all the images that Nasa’s Hubble Telescope has managed to capture of Kilonovas.
