Dark energy may allow black holes to live in “perfectly paired” binaries

Binary black holes may be more stable than scientists previously thought, the action of dark energy accelerating the expansion of the universe and helping these binary black holes maintain a safe distance.

Black holes are regions of space around an infinitely dense ‘singularity’ born from the collapse of a massive star. With multiple masses Sun Crammed into small 10-mile (16-kilometer) diameters, black holes have a gravitational pull so strong that even light can’t escape the boundary around them, called event horizon. And because massive stars usually found in binary pairs orbiting each other, black holes also often occur in binary partnerships.
