Hubble telescope captured a super speedy jet blasting from star crash

NASA's Hubble Telescope captured an exceptional colliding stars.

They have made a unique measurement that indicates a jet, plowing through space at speeds greater than 99.97% the speed of light

It was propelled by the titanic collision between two neutron stars.

The blast released the energy comparable to that of a supernova explosion.

The explosive event, named GW170817, was observed in August 2017.

While the event took place in 2017, it has taken several years for scientists to come up with a way to analyze the Hubble data and data from other telescopes to paint this full picture

This work paves the way for more precision studies of neutron star mergers, detected by the LIGO, Virgo and KAGRA gravitational wave observatories
