Neutron stars are the smallest and the most densest stars in our Universe. The diameter of a neutron star is about 20km and mass is about 1.4 times that of our Sun.

This means that a Neutron star is so dense that on Earth, one teaspoon of neutron star would weigh around a billion tons.

In space, when two supermassive objects collide, gravitational waves are formed.

On 14th August,

Scientists discovered some gravitational waves. It was coming from 900 million light years away.

Scientists weren’t 100% sure but they believe those ripples were generated by the never before seen collision of a neutron star and a black hole
