Last year’s gravitational wave discovery may have perceived likean eon has ended. A significant occasion in which accurate experiment finally concluded a hundred year hunt to affirm a perplexed prophecy made by Albert Einstein. The discovery gave rise to completely new field of astronomy, and the outcome is finally starting to seep in.

A team of researchers culled apart the data from the three gravitational wave detectionsthat the Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatories (LIGO) has made since being overturned on. The scientists have yet not made any conclusions and have selected a few alternatives for the formation of black hole pairs.

No matter where this research takes them the ultimate result will show that far away black holes the ones that produced the gravitational waves LIGO detected are different than the ones we know of. The New Research published in Nature continues a story that was left off when astronomers declared the third confirmed gravitational wave detection.

Pairs of black holes spin like basketballs and their spin position can decide how they are formed. If the spins line up with the black holes’ orbit around one another, then the pair probably formed together as the orbiting stars both collapsed.If the spins were in the opposite direction from the orbits or misaligned, then one of the black holes could have formed and another one passed by and got trapped in an orbit by the gravity, and could have even formed in some strange black hole nursery, something scientists certainly haven’t perceived in the Milky Way.
