We are also Neutron Star Stuff — 2 Comments

  1. Dr. Frye
    Emphasizing the other observations noted in your post
    that high energy gamma rays, X-rays, optical, infrared and radio light were also detected,
    it is reported in this paper
    that the the gravity waves from binary neutron star merger GW170817
    and their associated GRB170817A electromagnetic(gamma ray) counterparts
    arrived on earth at the same time(within 1.74 seconds) from a distance of 40Mpc (1.2E+21 kilometer)
    providing evidence that gravity waves travel at the speed of light.
    The speed of light is constant!
