Colliding of Black Holes

Physics is just a world of simplicity explained with logic and math. The fact that we are brave enough to be examining the vast universe with its components nowhere close to the size of humans; fills the streak of intimidation. The universe acts as a system of equilibrium; just like the law of conservation of energy it also follows the law of conservation of mass/matter. The biggest contributors, still veiled with mysteries are Dark Matter, Black Holes, WIMPs, and Higgs Bosons etc.

Jumping up to the next few levels where two of such black holes come in contact. According to studies, the surrounding space-time surge and undulate causing a severe distortion in the space-time fabric. This warp is so complicated that even the incredibly high levels of calculations in Math fail to clearly explain the phenomenon. Even though physicists have simulated many different probabilities; nailing down the perfect explanation has not been possible. However, many theories have floated up. The two black holes may join and become a supermassive black hole.

…but if you want a simpler explanation; you’d probably want to simply watch it from a distant, it would be quite a rive for any material to be swirling in its vicinity.

    This is a pretty big idea to throw to the floor, but unfortunately the laws of physics support this hypothesis; no matter how hard it is for you or me to quite comprehend (physics would be boring if all of the theories involved actually followed logic).

    In 1911, Rutherford proposed a revolutionary view of the atom. His atomic theory suggested that the atom consisted of a small, dense core of positively charged particles in the centre (or nucleus) of the atom, surrounded by a swirling ring of electrons and the rest of the atom was mostly space.
