Scientists Detected Five Pairs of Black Holes Ready to Merge

Using data from the Chandra X-ray Observatory, the Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE), the ground-based Large Binocular Telescope in Arizona, the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) and the Mapping Nearby Galaxies at APO (MaNGA) survey, scientists have detected five pairs of supermassive black holes, coming from two colliding galaxies, ready to merge. Studying these events may help scientists find out how black holes form mighty gravitational waves.
