Breakthrough Study Confirms Cause of Short Gamma-Ray Bursts

A simulation performed on our supercomputer cluster shows that the collision oftwo neutron stars can naturally produce the magnetic structures thought to power the high-speed particle jets associated with short gamma-ray bursts (GRBs). The study provides the most detailed glimpse of the forces driving some of the universe’s most energetic explosions. You can read here our press releases in German/English or find some images and movies of our simulations. See also NASA’s coverage and NASA’s movie.
