There is a vast expanse in the outer space. Scientists have been studying the outer space mystery that has long been existing. In fact, just last month, scientists discovered something very interesting to be researched about by those who love space science.

There is a newly discovered wave in the outer space. According to New Scientist, a team of scientists from LIGO, an obervatory that deals with astronomical matters, announced last month that it detected waves. About more than a billion years ago, two black holes that crashed together resulted to these gravitational waves.

The existence of these involved black holes could have been among those pioneering in the universe was suggested by the team of scientists that takes care of the matter. These black holes are dubbed as the primordial black holes. These black holes would have existed after the big bang. The densest areas could have collapsed to form these black holes.

Furthermore, the team of scientists assumed that all the dark matter is composed of primordial black holes around the mass. They even computed how often these objects pair up, which eventually collide.

According to NASA, astrophysicist Alexander Kashlinsky of NASA Goddard said that there is a possible linkage between primordial black holes and dark matter. The recent study about this discovery is an effort to bring a broad set of ideas and observations. Such interpretation aligns with the knowledge of cosmic infrared. It may explain the unexpectedly high masses of merging black holes that were discovered last year.

Furthermore, with Kashlinsky's scientific leadership, his science team will be participating in the European Space Agency mission. Its mission is dubbed as the "Euclid's Mission" that is scheduled to launch in 2020. The said mission has a project called LIBRAE. It will soon enable the observatory determine the portions produced by black holes. To know more about this, read here.
