The uncertainty of science: A review of the data has caused astronomers to retract a prediction that the two stars in a binary system were going to merge in 2022.
It appears that the mistaken prediction occurred because of a typo in the dataset they were using. The new analysis pinpointed this, which once corrected showed that no star merger is going to take place.
