Galaxy’s violent destruction was a ‘black hole delivery service’

The absorption of a small galaxy into a larger spiral galaxy seems to have acted as a ‘black hole delivery system’ leaving a distant galaxy with two supermassive black holes that will eventually collide.

A team of astronomers used the Hubble Space Telescope and the Chandra X-ray Observatory to observe the spiral galaxy NGC 4424 ,  located 54 million light-years away in the Virgo galactic cluster, and identify an elongated red object as a small cluster of stars.
