• 6.6 Billion Light Years Away: Neutron Stars Merger Radiance Observed

    ​On April 11th, 2019, an international team led by Professor XUE Yongquan from University of Science and Technology (USTC) announced their observation of a unique X-ray signal from a 6.6 billion light years away survey, which is highly likely powered by a magnetar, as the aftermath of a binary neutron star merger. This discovery was published on Nature.
