NASA featured science by Prof. Julian Krolik and co-authors on their homepage today.

The science focuses on a computer simulation of two supermassive black holes spiraling toward collision. It fully incorporates the physical effects of Einstein’s general theory of relativity and shows that gas in such systems will glow predominantly in ultraviolet and X-ray light.
