Hey Space Placers!

Here's a term in astronomy that you may not have heard of before- "kilanova". Hubble Space Telescope (HST) has obtained observations of a fireball formed when two massive compact objects merge in a huge explosion that gives off gravitational waves and a major burst of radiation that we see as a "Gamma Ray Burst".
