A group of scientists from the University of Waterloo has come up with a new method which can identify ten unknown black holes per year. With the help of the newly invented trick, the scientists will now be able to determine around ten hidden black holes per year. If everything goes well, it can double the number of currently known black holes only within two years, and disengage the unknown and baffling history of black holes in less than one decade.

The study was led by Avery Broderick, a professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Waterloo, and Mansour Karami, a PhD student from the Faculty of Science, worked with associates in the United States and Iran. Both of the researchers with their colleagues are on their move that can suggest the methods that can suggest the emerging field of gravitational wave astronomy and the path following which the scientists will be able to scan the dark holes and other shady elements surfing in space.

The study was published this week in the academic journal of ‘The Astrophysical Journal,’ proposing a more comprehensive and wider approach to finding out the study black holes are orbiting in space in large numbers. The emerging system by combining two standard astrophysical devices like, microlensing and radio wave interferometry, will detect the black holes.

While reporting this matter, Avery Broderick, a professor at the University of Waterloo said, “Within the next one decade the world will be acquainted with the sufficient amount of data about the black holes. The newly invented method also doubles the number of currently known black holes within next two years”.

Taking the statement further, Broderick said, the information received by the new system will let the scientists and space researchers explore and study planetary mass black holes at a range of stages that often pulled out to billions of years.

He further added that, by placing the dynamical physics which uses Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) to explore and look into a larger astronomical context, we would observe the presence and movement of black holes and the method is assured to double the number of black holes we currently know.
