Possible massive ‘kilonova’ explosion creates an epic afterglow

Astronomers may have spotted the afterglow from an epic cosmic event known as a “kilonova.”

Kilonovas occur after the collision of two hyper-dense neutron stars, which are the remnants of stars that have died in supernova explosions. Astronomers think they have spotted an afterglow in X-rays from the event, which is dubbed GW170817.
