Scientists detect tones in the ringing of a newborn black hole for the first time | MIT News

"If Albert Einstein's theory of general relativity holds true, then a black hole, born from the cosmically quaking collisions of two massive black holes, should itself "ring" in the aftermath, producing gravitational waves much like a struck bell reverbates sound waves. Einstein predicted that the particular pitch and decay of these gravitational waves should be a direct signature of the newly formed black hole's mass and spin.
Now, physicists from MIT and elsewhere have studied the ringing of an infant black hole, and found that the pattern of this ringing does, in fact, predict the black hole's mass and spin - more evidence that Einstein was right all along."

it's probably a new djent band testing their custom built one of a kinda extra super baritone long scale. 0, 1, 01, 01 000 1 life.

"We should investigate the noises this black hole is making" is literally how the plot of Event Horizon happened.

One second you are doing some cool science-y stuff, and the next you are talking about how where you are going you won't need eyes to see.

Also, if all they are getting is ringing noises, they aren't very good scientists. There should be some messages in latin in there somewhere.

Best standalone sci-fi movie ever made.
