Neutron Star Mergers Cause Short Gamma-Ray Bursts, Study Confirms

Gamma-ray bursts, aka GRBs, are one of the most powerful events known to occur in the entire universe. These intense explosions, which release narrow beams of electromagnetic radiation, have been observed in distant galaxies and can release sun’s entire life’s energy in a matter of few seconds.
