What would happen if two equally massive black holes directly collided at 5% the speed of light. I'm not talking about slowly orbiting each other for thousand of years. I mean one instant catastrophic event as with a hadron collider. Could the energy be enough to blast all matter (from the black holes) into a huge cloud that would then form into a galaxy and slowly back to another black hole? There are similar questions but I am particularly interested in the possibility that this could happening at all considering most black hole theories say that once information goes in it can't come out.
