Bildunterschrift:
epa06269419 An undated handout photo made available by the European Southern Observatory (ESO) on 16 October 2017 shows an artist's impression of two tiny but very dense neutron stars at the point at which they merge and explode as a kilonova. Such a very rare event is expected to produce both gravitational waves and a short gamma-ray burst, both of which were observed on 17 August 2017 by LIGO–Virgo and Fermi/INTEGRAL respectively. Subsequent detailed observations with many ESO telescopes confirmed that this object, seen in the galaxy NGC 4993 about 130 million light-years from the Earth, is indeed a kilonova. Such objects are the main source of very heavy chemical elements, such as gold and platinum, in the Universe. EPA/ESO/L. Calcada/M. Kornmesser/ HANDOUT HANDOUT EDITORIAL USE ONLY/NO SALES
