    LIGO heard the death screams when two orbiting black holes killed one or the other.
    Creating gravitational waves that hit headlines at top of all news that you read.
    The background story of that is very interesting and here

    http://www.newyorker.com/tech/eleme...exist-heres-how-scientists-finally-found-them

    Those 2 black holes are medium run of the mill black holes, one 29 and the other 36 times the mass of our sun.
    The resulting black hole is 62 solar mass, or energy equal to 3 suns turned into energy in fraction of a second.

    The 2 black holes mentioned in opening of this thread are/were (as they might well have gone BANG!) 150 million and 4 million solar mass, a huge HUGE HUGE lot bigger than 29 and 36 solar mass.

    THAT BANG WILL BE OUT OF THIS WORLD ENTIRELY.

    Yeah, I hope it happens far, far away out of this world.

    When that 29 solar mass black hole merged with the 36 solar mass black hole,

    http://news.nationalgeographic.com/2016/02/160211-gravitational-waves-found-spacetime-science/
    In the last second before the black holes merged, they released 50 times more energy than all the stars in all the galaxies in the universe were releasing, combined.


    Not something you like to happen nearby.

    As to what happen when 150 million and 4 million solar mass black holes kissed each other?

    Do not even try to guess!
    Just be glad that happen very very far far away.

    Yeah, there is one heck of a lot of energy within a black hole. Good thing there are not a lot of them running around loose.

    The theory that Black Holes are the source for the creation of spiral galaxies is gaining more support.

    Creation and destruction. All random.
