Recently, LIGO Scientific Collaboration (LSC) has made the discovery of gravitational waves from a pair of neutron star-black hole (NS-BH) mergers. The reverberations from these two objects were picked up using a global network of gravitational wave detectors, the most sensitive scientific instruments ever built. Until now, the LIGO-Virgo Collaboration (LVC) was only able to observe collisions between pairs of black
