Black Hole Merger Movie

Accurate calculations of the gravitational waveforms emitted during the collision of black holes can now be made. A new computer study of how a pair of black holes, circling each other, disturbs the surrounding space and sends huge gusts of gravitational waves outwards, should greatly benefit the experimental search for those waves with detectors such as the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) and the planned Laser Interferometer Space Antenna (LISA).
