Logarithmic volumetric isolevels of the neutron star density (rho).

The density levels come out more clearly in this logarithmic rendering, such that even in the outer regions the motions of the material is visible, but also the merger of the neutron stars' cores. Some matter may be accelerated to reach escape velocity in the outer regions.

Simulation: Philip Gressman ( WashU )
