Close up of merger of two neutron stars
01/21/13

 

An artist's impression of the merger of two neutron stars. Short duration gamma-ray bursts are thought to be caused by the merger of some combination of white dwarfs, neutron stars or black holes. Theory suggests that they are short lived as there is little dust and gas to fuel an 'afterglow'. Credit: Part of an image created by NASA / Dana Berry
