Scientists have discovered a massive pair of supermassive black holes that are expected to collide – IGN

Scientists have discovered a pair of supermassive black holes that are set to merge into one massive singularity. The findings could help astronomers understand what will happen when our Milky Way galaxy merges with the Andromeda galaxy in 4.5 billion years. Supermassive black holes are believed to lie at the heart of every major galaxy, …

Two Black Holes Collide Merge

Supermassive black holes are on the way to catastrophic collision: the doomed pair is closer than observed

Artist’s impression of two black holes about to collide. New observations and analysis reveal two Goliath black holes only 750 light-years apart and closing in, orbiting each other in the wake of a galaxy merger. Astronomers from the Flatiron Institute and their colleagues have discovered two ghostly Goliaths on their way to a cataclysmic meeting. …
