That gold wedding ring was formed in a split second by two stars that had shined bright, gone cold and collapsed into neutron starts (VERY DENSE) that collided ages before our sun caught fire. KEWL. Also astounding that an event every 100,000 years (just recently ABLE to be detected by humans) showed us this fact. My God Is An Awesome God :)
