Astronomers in the U.S. and Italy believe they may have detected gravitational waves created when a black hole swallowed a neutron star. If the discovery is confirmed, it would be the first evidence that black holes and neutron stars can pair up to form binary systems. The apparent detection was made on April 26 by the twin LIGO observatories in the U.S. and the Virgo detector in Italy.
