What Happens When Black Holes Collide? - Kip Thorne

(With Spanish Subtitles)
Professor Kip Thorne discusses some of the newest theoretical findings into what happens when 2 black holes collide and merge in space and what happens to the fabric of spacetime in the vicinity of this extremely violent event.

The energy released, in the form of gravitational waves, from this collision has been calculated to be 10,000 times the combined electromagnetic luminosity of every star in the known universe. Although this massive energy release lasts for only a short burst of time, it is by far the most energetic event that can occur in the known universe with the exception of the Big Bang itself.

Using gravitational wave detectors, many scientists have proposed ways to detect these gravitational waves which could travel for millions of light yea...
