Are there black holes 30 times the mass of our Sun?

Using open-source software, POSYDON, scientists have simulated the existence of massive merging binary blackhole systems that may exist in other galaxies

What mechanisms produce these black holes? Are they the product of the evolution of two stars, similar to our sun but significantly more massive, evolving within a binary system? Or do they result from black holes in densely populated star clusters running into each other by chance? Or might a more exotic mechanism be involved? All of these questions are still hotly debated today. Now scientists have developed a new simulation software using the POSYDON open source to shed more light on the...
