Binary black hole 3C 75

(ORDO NEWS) — 3C 75 is a system of two supermassive black holes in the galaxy NGC 1128, which is part of the Abell 400 galaxy cluster.

Black holes rotate at a distance of about 25,000 light-years from each other, while being 296 million light-years from Earth.

Bright spheres are supermassive black holes surrounded by accretion disks, and specific streams of light are hot plasma jets or radio jets that come from the vicinity of these gravitational “monsters”.

The black holes are slowly approaching each other in a spiral, and this will one day lead to their merger, which will stir up space-time with such force that this event can be recorded on Earth (with the help of highly sensitive instruments, of course).

The image was conscious based on data obtained by NASA‘s Chandra X-ray Observatory on April 5, 2006.
