The Strangest Object(s) in Space” from Ridddle (2019), Is actually two kinds of objects.

There are supposedly six known double white dwarfs known in the observable universe, the collision of two white dwarfs, which makes a star incredibly bright with infrared but not visible.

But nearer to us 5 billion years ago, before the solar system formed, two neutron stars collided, leading to the dispersion of heavy metal elements available in the solar system.
