An international team of astronomers has recorded gravitational waves resulting from the merging of black holes, forming a new giant black hole, 9 billion light years away.
According to a report by the Australian National University of Canberra, the size of the new black hole is about 80 times the size of the sun.
Black holes have increased their rotation before they were melted, scientists said, helping scientists observe the intense gravitational wave. That was an unprecedented phenomenon in the history of astronomical observation.
The collision of black holes is a rare and unique phenomenon: the area in which the collision occurs does not prevent the expulsion of possible space crimes, even if it flies at the speed of light.
In 2017 astronomers monitored the phenomenon only at a distance between 3 and 6 billion light years.
The recording of gravitational waves, coming from those distant black holes, will allow scientists to make changes in the design of the telescopes, which will allow them one day to look at the beginning of the universe.
Gravitational waves were recorded for the first time in 2015 by the LIGO telescope. American physicists Rainer Weiss and Perry Birch won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2017 for achieving this result.
