When two black holes collide, this is the result!

When I saw the title of this thread, I assumed it was just another reference to Canberra...... but posted in the wrong category. I think my cynicism is showing. 8-[

The strongest gravitational waves — the only ones we have a hope of detecting — are formed when objects with enormous gravity undergo dramatic acceleration. Like when two black holes merge to form another.

If scientists have indeed detected the to and fro movement caused by passing gravitational waves it will be a monumental achievement.

These ripples are so small — only a fraction the size of an atom — that Einstein thought they had to be beyond our technology.
Things get totally beyond me, the more I learn the more I realise how much we still don't know. Thank you, Trishia.
I dream, therefore I am.

The more you know, the more you realise how little you know.

Tricia I found this interesting. It takes me time to grapple with this stuff and cant say I understand it.
I will not give up ploughing through stephen Hawkins brief history of time.
A beaut post.
