'Mosh pits' in star clusters a likely source of LIGO's first black holes

Northwestern University astrophysicists have predicted history. They show their theoretical predictions last year were correct: The merger of two massive black holes detected Sept. 14, 2015, could easily have formed through dynamic interactions in the star-dense core of a globular cluster. These binary black holes are born in the cluster's chaotic 'mosh pit,' kicked out of the cluster and then eventually merge into one black hole. LIGO's first detection of colliding black holes is perfectly...
