Merging neutron stars provides insight into the fundamental properties of matter

Simulation of fusing neutron stars, calculated with supercomputers. Different colors show the mass density and the temperature some time after the fusion and just before the object collapses into a black hole. Quarks are expected to form where temperature and density are higher. The option to measure the gravitational waves of two merging neutron stars offered the opportunity to answer …
