transmissions from space
transmissions from space - Long far and ago away, a duo of dancing supermassive black holes look like spiraling in towards the other person, eventually doomed to collide in a stupendous, almost unimaginable, cosmic smash-up. Dancing at night, the strange pair will merge a mere million years from now, liberating energy comparable to 100 million supernova blasts, where massive stars perish. If not all, large galaxies in the Universe--including our own Milky Way--contain supermassive black holes with masses equivalent to millions, or even billions, of Suns, and these objects of incredible darkness and their host galaxies appear to evolve together, or "co-evolve", the dark-hearts of most. Theory predicts that as galaxies collide and eventually merge, growing a lot more massive consequently, so too do their hearts of darkness. Inside the January 7, 2015 issue of the journal Nature, a team of astronomers report over a weird repeating light signal from the distant quasar which they say is most probably the consequence of a duo of dancing supermassive black holes during the last act of any merger--a thing that is predicted from theory but which includes never been seen before! A quasar is certainly a brilliant, luminous object that out-dazzles all of the stars in the host galaxy combined, and is visible from across the entire Universe!
