Masses In The Stellar Graveyard by Frank Elavsky
The 2017 Nobel Prize in physics went to gravitational wave researchers. Their instruments detected black holes and neutron stars were merging together in space, forming larger objects.
Astronomers have been finding lone black holes and neutron stars for decades using different detection methods - but all of this data is in separate places.
This tool brings this data together to empower researchers who want to teach others about the importance behind “the densest things that form when stars die.”
