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.

  • $\begingroup$ Yes I read that but it did not seem that event was quite as catastrophic. $\endgroup$ – Bill Alsept Feb 5 '16 at 20:37
  • $\begingroup$ Note that a massive object technically speaking doesn't have a speed-maximum, it has a speed-supremum, a.k.a. $c$. $\endgroup$ – Qmechanic Feb 5 '16 at 21:23
  • $\begingroup$ When I said Pius be physically possible I just met an average of what might be excepted from everyone else discussing this. I would think the minimum speed could be equivalent to the fastest thing we've ever observed moving in the universe. $\endgroup$ – Bill Alsept Feb 5 '16 at 21:50
  • $\begingroup$ Could someone remove the "marked as duplication" considering I am asking a different question. Thanks $\endgroup$ – Bill Alsept Feb 8 '16 at 8:57
