Scientists Find a Double Black Hole
on 31 August 2015
After carefully studying data from the Hubble Space Telescope, scientists are convinced that the closest quasar to Earth (about 600 million light-years away) contains a double black hole at its core. The larger of the pair is roughly 150 million times the size of our sun, while the smaller black hole is four million times larger. Eventually, the two black holes will swirl into each other, possibly leading to some type of intergalactic phenomenon. Luckily, that’s not predicted to take place until a few hundred thousand years from now.
