This made sense to me, a non mathematician and non physicist. So basically the entangled particles will behave identically when observed. So there is no information linking the particles across spacetime.

So like if I had two cans and two six sided die and I “entangled” the die and closed the lid. I could then send one can to the moon and keep the other and when opened, both die will show the same result because of entanglement when normally there would be a 1/6 probability of what is observed for a single die.

Just read the short ESA post and the answer seems to be no one knows, but they have to projects planned to try and detect both gravitational waves and x-rays that are expected from such a merger.

I suppose as long as you are not in the path of the x-ray blast, there isn’t much to be concerned about.

Maybe I am misunderstanding what is being shown here then. Because it looks like stars that used to orbit the galactic plane of on or the other galaxy have been flung out into a huge horseshoe hoop while close to the galactic cores the gasses are even hotter with a huge jet of superheated gas shooting “down” from them.

Very cool pics. The surface is way more bumpy than I had thought from prior photos. I also can’t wait for the unhinged to do their Rorschach test claims of aliens because of the light/shadow play on some of the features.

I hope I live to see the day we actually build a permanent (probably sub-surface) base there.
