60 Black Holes And 500 Stars 'Mosh' To Form Black Hole Binary | Simulation
By Steve Spaleta |
Astrophysicists have theorized that the violent interaction in between stars and black holes in the core of a globular cluster created the black holes from LIGO's first gravitational waves discovery. Northwestern University's visualization studio created this simulation to show how they could have formed.
