Videos released just as a telescope survey suggests two black holes are due to collide in seven years' time.

When astronomers try to simulate colliding giant black holes, they usually rely on simplified approximations to model the swirling disks of matter that surround and fuel these gravitational monsters. Researchers now report that, for the first time, they have simulated the collision of two supermassi...
