LIGO hold a big press conference and announce the merger of
Neutron Stars detected via gravitational waves and optical
instruments for the first time. We now know about types of gamma
ray burst, and where gold and platinum come from.
Since we did an episode about the gravitational wave detections and the Nobel Prize less than a week ago, I thought it would be fun for me to breathlessly describe it based on what reading I've been able to do and give a few early thoughts.
