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.

    Einstein states that ?the unsuccessful attempts to discover any motion of the earth relatively to the "light medium," suggest that the phenomena of electrodynamics as well as of mechanics possess no properties corresponding to the idea of absolute rest.? ( Einstein 1905 [6]).

    So I chose to investigate two members of the electro-magnetic spectrum, Gamma radiation and visible light. Ideally I would have investigated gamma radiation and radio waves, the two opposing ends of the spectrum, however we do not have the equipment available to measure radio waves with wavelengths in the region

    Einstein conducted many studies. A few of them are quantum mechanics, the relationship between mass and energy, and the principle of equivalence. Quantum mechanics is defined in Albert Einstein: the Rebel behind Relativity, by Jake Goldberg, as "a theory of matter that describes the behavior of subatomic particles based on

  2. The Hunt for the Higgs Boson

    WHAT IS THE HIGGS BOSON? The Higgs boson, also known as 'The God Particle', can be defined as: A hypothetical, electrically neutral, massive and scalar elementary particle. It was first proposed by the English theoretical physicist Peter Higgs, at his time at the University of Edinburgh, when Higgs came up with the theory of the Higgs field.
