Get in my belly!!! What else happens besides the production of gravity waves when a black hole swallows the extremely dense neutron star? Is there a massive explosion and/or release of radiation?

What happens? A new universe is formed that wipes out the old universe in seconds.

I would think there’d be a huge release of gamma radiation. Woe be unto any planets in its path. Given the distance, I think we’re safe.

Carole King
“I Feel The Earth Move”

I feel the earth move under my feet
I feel the sky tumbling down, tumbling down
I feel my heart start to trembling
Whenever you’re around

Ooh, baby, when I see your face
Mellow as the month of May
Oh, darling, I can’t stand it
When you look at me that way

I feel the earth move under my feet
I feel the sky tumbling down, tumbling down
I feel my heart start to trembling
Whenever you’re around

Oh, darling, when you’re near me
And you tenderly call my name
I know that my emotions
Are something I just can’t tame
I’ve just got to have you, baby

I feel the earth move under my feet
I feel the sky tumbling down, tumbling down
I feel the earth move under my feet
I feel the sky tumbling down
I just lose control
Down to my very soul
I get a hot and cold all over
I feel the earth move under my feet
I feel the sky tumbling down,
Tumbling down, tumbling down...

My taxes go regularly into the black hole of IRS. The money disappears and I receive no benefits from it.

You know, I just hate when that happens.

An innocent Neutron Star is minding its own Business and along comes some Black Hole.

My crude and quick math would put it at about 903,755,016 light years.

The ANU SkyMapper Telescope responded to the detection alert and scanned the entire likely region of space where the event occurred, but we've not found any visual confirmation

Must have gulped it down in one bite.

I saw a leprechaun and a unicorn arguing over a parking spot once.
