Astronomers continue to develop computer simulations to help future observatories better home in on black holes, the most elusive inhabitants of the universe. The simulations, created by computers working through sets of equations too complicated to solve by hand, illustrate how matter interacts in merger environments. Scientists can use what they learn about black hole mergers to identify some telltale characteristics that let them distinguish black hole mergers from stellar events.
