Kate Henriksson and some of her fellow members of the SXS collaboration produced newer and better data for simulations of neutron stars colliding with black holes. Using advanced numerical techniques, the neutron stars they've constructed are the densest ever created, which will lead to some of the most extreme simulations in the world. Check out the preprint here.

Inspiration

Dark-heaving—boundless,
endless, and sublime,
The image of eternity—
the Throne of the Invisible...

About SXS

The SXS project is a collaborative research effort involving multiple institutions. Our goal is the simulation of black holes and other extreme spacetimes to gain a better understanding of Relativity, and the physics of exotic objects in the distant cosmos.

The SXS project is supported by Canada Research Chairs, CFI, CIfAR, Compute Canada, Max Planck Society, NASA, NSERC, the NSF, Ontario MEDI, the Sherman Fairchild Foundation, and XSEDE.
