Gravitational waves from black hole mergers could help test general relativity

Scientists have detected gravitational waves generated from the black hole merger event, which resulted in the black hole settling into a stable, spherical shape. These waves reveal that the combo black hole may be much larger than previously thought.

When first detected on May 21, 2019, a gravitational wave event known as GW190521 was believed to have come from a merger between the two. Black holes, one with a mass equal to 85 Suns and the other with a mass equal to about 66 Suns. Scientists believed that this merger produced about 142 Solar mass The daughter is a black hole.
