“Kissing” Stars

Scientists have spotted two massive, super-hot stars twirling into each other about 160,000 light years away. The nearly identical stars are so close together (about 7.5 million miles away from each other) that their surfaces overlap—making them appear as if they’re kissing. If the stars continue on their paths, two outcomes are possible: they will merge together and form a single, massive star in a bright, cataclysmic explosion or they will both be destroyed and create a double black hole.
