In 2017, scientists detected X-rays following the collision of two neutron stars
It was the first time that X-rays were observed following a gamma ray burst
The X-rays were stil observable even 2 1/2 years after the collision
Scientists offer possible explanations for the X-ray emission’s strange behavior
A team of researchers can still detect lingering X-rays from a neutron star collision that happened 1,000 days prior. The prolonged X-ray emission continues to puzzle scientists.
It was on Aug. 17, 2017, when the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO) and Virgo first detected gravitational waves from the merger of two neutron stars. Dubbed GW 170817, the event was observed by various telescopes from all over the world within hours of the first detection.
The initial burst was followed by a short-duration gamma ray-burst (GRB) and a slower kilonova. Nine days later, scientists detected an afterglow that was visible
Even though the Google Pixel 2 series is now starting to get a little long in the tooth, both devices are still impressive pieces of hardware — especially when it comes the camera. However, it looks like the camera issues faced by Pixel 2 owners are still causing some major problems — and it looks like the issue might be spreading.
The problem has been around since the early part of 2020, which culminated in a flurry of 1-star negative reviews on the Play Store for the Google Camera app. Since then, not a great deal has been done to help try and resolve the frustrating Pixel 2 camera issues. Instead, it looks like they have even spread to some of the newer Google Pixel cohort, including the Pixel 3, 3a, and even Pixel 4 (via Android Police).
For those out of the loop, affected devices will very briefly
