contour plot
Playing with simple contour plots! The original image (Messier 101) from Wikipedia has been modified by a Gaussian Blur (Gimp: Filters > Blur > Gaussian Blur with r = 4 px) and Colorify (Gimp: Colors > Colorify) effect to avoid a spill-over of contour lines. The image is then imported to python with the PIL module to create a contour plot. The background shows the original image in grayscale (L mode). Python code.

#2 Two colliding neutron stars form a black hole. These aren't normal stars like our sun. The collision of main sequence stars would neither form a black hole nor a supernova! The corresponding mass threshold for neutron stars to form a BH is called the Tolman-Oppenheimer-Volkoff limit.
