    Thanks n_FA. You'd think that with a 17-millisecond spin period that whips around its compact companion at a terrifying rate and the binary period is only1.88 h, that they could consummate this merger in well less than 46 million years.

    Yep. But for the fact that the energy loss due to gravitational radiation sets the scale....
