About the Video

A Magnetar is basically a Neutron star but with an unusually strong magnetic field. Scientists have spotted Magnetars in the Universe already but they have never seen one being born.

On May 22nd this year, Hubble spotted a massive gamma-ray burst followed by longer-lasting glowing kilonova with 10 times more infrared light than normal. Further observations showed that, It's a sign of two neutron stars colliding eventually forming a very large Magnetar.
