Orbiting Supermassive Black Holes Have Been Observed For The First Time
That's right. "For a long time, we've been looking into space to try and find a pair of these supermassive black holes orbiting as a result of two galaxies merging," says Greg Taylor, one of the researchers, from The University of New Mexico (UNM). "Even though we've theorised that this should be happening, nobody had ever seen it until now." The team observed the pair of black holes in a galaxy, named 0402+379, roughly 750 million light years from Earth."
