Modeling the merger of a black hole with a neutron star and the subsequent process in a single simulation

Numerical simulation of a black hole-neutron star merger. The density profile is shown in blue and green, the magnetic-field lines penetrating the black hole are shown in pink. Unbound matter is shown in white its velocity by green arrows. Credit: K. Hayashi (Kyoto University) Using supercomputer calculations, scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational … Read more
