Princeton scientists spot two supermassive black holes on collision course with each other

“Astronomers have discovered a distant pair of titanic black holes on a collision course. Each black hole’s mass is more than 800 million times that of our sun. As the two gradually draw closer together in a death spiral, they will begin sending gravitational waves rippling through space-time.”

Gravitational Waves Detected 100 Years After Einstein’s Prediction

“Physicists have concluded that the detected gravitational waves were produced during the final fraction of a second of the merger of two black holes to produce a single, more massive spinning black hole. This collision of two black holes had been predicted but never observed.”

“Once supermassive black holes get close enough to each other, they stop swapping gas and stars and stealing each other’s energy and everything slows right down. The final parsec problem theory suggests that all black hole binaries will stall out at around a parsec apart (3.2 light years) and time will stretch out into as-good-as-infinity.”
