A new model is bringing scientists a step closer to understanding the kinds of light signals produced when two supermassive black holes, which are millions to billions of times the mass of the Sun, spiral toward a collision. For the first time, a new computer simulation that fully incorporates the physical effects of Einstein’s general theory of relativity shows that gas in such systems will glow predominantly in ultraviolet and X-ray light.

Just about every galaxy the size of our own Milky Way or larger contains a monster black hole at its center. Observations show galaxy mergers occur frequently in the universe, but so far no one has seen a merger of these giant black holes.

The new simulation shows three orbits of a pair of supermassive black holes only 40 orbits from merging. The models reveal the light emitted at this stage of the process may be dominated by UV light with some high-energy X-rays, similar to what's seen in any galaxy with a well-fed supermassive black hole.

This 360-degree video places the viewer in the middle of two circling supermassive black holes. The simulation shows how the black holes distort the starry background and capture light, producing black hole silhouettes.

A distinctive feature called a photon ring outlines the black holes. The video represents a 46 minute orbital period. This corresponds to a binary with a total mass 1 million times the Sun's mass.

Is it just me, or is this video relaxing to watch :drunken: and how lucky are we to be able to live in an age where we are able to learn to much about the Universe? and see so much. Future generations will be luckier still
