Astronomers of International gravitational wave team have discovered a distinct and most massive black hole collision till date. These black holes are generally formed when a massive star collapses and dies. The black hole formed this time is 142 times heavier than the Sun. The massive black hole collision was discovered by the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO) and VIRGO interferometer, which is located in Italy. The newly formed black hole named, GW190521 emitted the signals from the distance of nearly 17.2 billion light-years, which were detected on May 21st, 2019. Till date it is the farthest originated gravitational wave signal to be detected by the man made machines.
