Habitability of Planets Will Depend on Their Interiors

   08 May 01:00:01   |  Universe Today

A lot of the headlines and discussion around the habitability of exoplanets is focused on their proximity to their star and on the presence of water.

A new signal detected by LIGO/Virgo may be the so-called ‘holy grail’ of astrophysics: the merger of a neutron star and a black hole. They’ve discovered pairs of black holes merging, and pairs of neutron stars merging, but until now, not a neutron star-black hole pair. “I think we’re opening a window on the universe.” …
