This is what Happens when Black Holes Collide

So, a black hole is a collapsed core of a very big star. Their gravity is so strong, as we know, even light can’t escape. However, black holes can collide. In the early 20th century, Einstein predicted that gravity is a distortion of spacetime. He also predicted that massive objects moving through spacetime should...

Neutron Star Collision Led to a Rumble of Gravitational Waves

Scientists have detected ripples in the fabric of space and time from a neutron star collision. They call those ripples gravitational waves. Two neutron stars, each small as a city but heavier than the sun, collided, thus forming a black hole. This powerful event in space threw gravitational waves and light toward our planet....

LIGO Detects A Third Black Hole Collision

Scientists have detected a black hole collision. It lies some 3 billion light-years away, much farther than the previous two discoveries. This is the third time since 2015 that these space-time vibrations known as gravitational waves from the merger of a pair of giant black holes has been observed via an instrument called...
