A Kilonova is a resulting phenomenon when two neutron stars or a neutron star and a black hole merge into each other. The term was first coined by Metzger et al. in 2010 as the brightness of this phenomenon compares to light that is released from a supernova which is an explosive end of a star. The first Kilonova was however detected on board the Swift Gamma-Ray Burst Explorer and KONUS/WIND spacecraft and then observed using the Hubble Space Telescope. The kilonova emits short gamma-ray bursts and strong electromagnetic radiation due to the radioactive decay of heavy r-process nuclei that are produced and ejected fairly isotropically during the merger process.
