Scientists are scrambling to prepare for the biggest collision ever witnessed by humanity.

In a perfect world, astronomers would have unlimited access to wonderful telescopes and unfettered resources to scour the universe.  Being imperfect, however, means that researchers must scramble to reserve observation time for unique celestial events and glimpses of the out of the ordinary.

So, when a queue forms for a never-before seen spectacle that may light up the cosmos with an explosion of light, we naturally pay attention.
Like now.

It’s two supermassive black holes, with a combined mass of hundreds of millions of our Suns, and they appear to be on a collision course with each other.  What their cataclysmic encounter will unleash is anyone’s guess, but the expression of energy will literally shake the entire universe.
In today’s video we peer across deep space at an event that has long been predicted but never witnessed by humanity.  What will we see?

  1. At the moment of collision the expected light show will commence, but once it clears and the gases dissipate, we shall be left with a rather giant sized smiley face where the two black holes once danced. 🙂

  2. Yup and because I'm the creator of my quantium universe / and my heart is gold/ I'm going to take back from the idiots that thought they could steal my crown

    The devil man is a lie and well god knows it's not his universe / hes not nice to those I love

  3. 1.2 billion light years from earth? So….. the collision could have happened already? The light from the event just hasn’t reached us yet. How long does it take for the light which is that far away to reach earth?

  4. honestly want to know why scientists are getting the time of the merger wrong, is because they dont know crap about how anything in space. they go off of computer models instead of true facts. to truly know how much closer they are getting you have to watch the entire process not moments here an moments again later on. an truthfully 90% of there guesses on time lengths, or how big something is, or how far away it is is all based on computer programs giving them those answers not what the answer truly is

  5. i think when they meet, they will repeal off each other and go back or through each other may look like there merging but it may throw each other on the other side, i think black holes are eyes, but that's just my thoughts

  6. 4:08 – "Will collide in the next 100 to 300 days" is not technically correct I guess…. 🤔
    It already collided 1.2 billion years ago, since that's the distance between us and that galaxy… We're just seeing it now! (In the next 100-300 days)
