Neutron stars are dead stars that have exploded and comprise densely concentrated mass. When two collide, they form a binary pair, ultimately fusing together after a long period of time. The merged neutron stars create a black hole from the weight of their combined mass and generate huge magnetic fields from the quick flashes of light they emit, which are brighter than a billion suns. They also produce significant gravitational waves.
