Two distant black holes could collide soon and destroy an entire galaxy

Two black holes are heading on a dangerous collision course that could potentially destroy an entire galaxy. It’s not the quick pitch for a new sci-fi flick — it’s science fact, happening in our universe.

Luckily for us, the eventual collision will likely not occur for another million years, and when it does, it’ll be off in the remote galaxy called PG 1302-102. Sure, a million years sounds like an insanely long time to us — but cosmically speaking, it’s just a a few ticks of the clock.
