Half of the stars you see at night are actually unresolved binary stars, with two stars orbiting each other.  Host Dr. Scott Roby examines the lives of interacting binaries, where strange things can happen such as a star being cannibalized by its neighbor or a star dying twice. Includes 3D models of contact binaries in updated software.
