WOW! I just stumbled onto this sight, and I must say that I am almost intimidated even posting a question. I had always prided myself on having an above-average knowledge of space, but after reading alot of the Q&A's on previous threads.....Its like I never made it out of the first grade. Anyway, here it goes.<br /><br />The topic of black holes is great interest to me. I've often wondered what would happen if two super massive black holes were to collide. Would the larger of the two "swallow" the smaller? If so, would the resulting gravitational force be greater following the merge?<br /><br />I greatly appreciate any input you may be able to provide regarding this. If any of the previous postings are any indicator, I know I won't be disappointed!
