merged stars

Two stars merged! Near the centre of the galaxy.

My first though was... wow. What would possibly happen when huge gravitational sources with large amounts of hydrogen came together? When a nearby black hole flings them together. Wow. I don't think anyone has considered the possibility. Until now...

Enjoyed the article at the Science Daily web site. Not a short title:

Astronomers solve puzzle about bizarre object at center of our galaxy: Enormous black hole drove two binary stars to merge.

More and more, I think that our "perspective" on black holes is wrong; they are good.

Maybe, they are engines.
