    Rare Triple Supermassive Black Hole System

    Einstein’s General Relativity predicts that merging black holes are sources of gravitational waves. Astronomers have managed to spot three black holes packed about as tightly together as they could be before spiraling into each other and merging.

    Galaxy SDSS J150243.09+1111557.3 contains a triple system with a very compact double supermassive black hole J1502S (E&W) and J1502P.
