Scientists have detected colliding black holes for the 2nd time — and it’s going to revolutionize our perception of the universe

These gravitational waves were generated by two black holes — eight and 14 times the mass of the sun — merging together 1.4 billion light years away from Earth.<p>This produced a spinning black hole 21 times the mass of the sun. It also released enough energy to rival the mass of the Sun in the form …
