Double O-Ne-Mg white dwarfs merging as the source of the Powerfull Gravitational Waves for LIGO/VIRGO type interferometers [HEAP]

New strong non spiralling gravitational waves (GW) source for LIGO/VIRGO detectors are proposed. It is noted that double O-Ne-Mg white dwarfs mergers can produce strong gravitational waves with frequencies in the 600-1200 Hz range. Such events can be followed by the Super Nova type Ia.
