Caption

Visualisation of a black hole. First in a series of four images from a computer simulation of gravitational waves emitted by a disturbed black hole. In this frame, the black hole has been distorted by a ring of gravitational energy, represented by the two tall features. The colour and the height of each point represent different aspects of the gravitational wave fields. As the black hole tries to return to its equilibrium state, it emits characteristic gravitational waves (its 'signature') in accordance with the General Theory of Relativity. Compare with R670/048, 049 & 050.
