I'm considering a new 'main thread' twist in the coming days and need a graphic of two merging black holes for the announcement. Stars around them should show 'gravitational lensing'. This will certainly also contain a report of a HUGE wormhole... so big it has never been seen before and will, of course, wipe out an entire alien race. Your choice on who.

Will this mean that some time in our near future that both ships or battle groups would have to combine forces and fight off a third hostile force which is on the move away from this massive black hole in search of new worlds and they run smack into our two fleets?
Both crews would have to collaborate in order to fight off this invading force in order to SURVIVE this overwhelmingly superior alien threat.
That would be cool
The subatomic particle that is the focus of this story is sometimes referred to as the "God particle," after the title of Nobel laureate Leon Lederman's lighthearted 1993 popular particle physics book "The God Particle: If the Universe is the Answer, What is the Question?"
Higgs predicted the existence of the boson while working at the University of Edinburgh to explain how atoms -- and the objects they make up -- have weight.
Without the particle, the basic physics theory -- the “standard model” -- lacks a crucial element, because it fails to explain how other subatomic particles -- such as quarks and electrons -- have mass.
The Higgs theory is that the bosons create a field through which the other particles pass.
The particles that encounter difficulty going through the field as though they are passing through molasses pick up more inertia, and mass. Those that pass through more easily are lighter.
The secrets of dark matter, the mysteries of the so-called God particle, and extra dimensions in the universe are just a few of the exotic discoveries scientists are hoping to make with the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), a 17-mile (27-kilometer) circular tunnel running 300 feet (91 meters) underground near Geneva.
"It is very possible, though we don't know, that the very peculiar value -- 73 percent or whatever it is -- of the dark energy is in fact not a fundamental quantity," Livio said. "In order for this to happen, you must have many universes."
And, Livio and other cosmologists argue, current theories for how our universe began allow for an infinite number of what he calls "pocket universes," of which we are just one.
"The values of some things like the dark energy could be different in different pocket universes," Livio maintains. "But not all of them would allow life. If the value of dark energy in our universe were more than 10 times larger than it is, galaxies would never have formed, and we wouldn't be here to talk about it."
When a scientist peers into space, either through a standard telescope or with the aid of a fancy space-based observatory, the things she observes emit light energy, called electromagnetic radiation.
Some of this radiation is optical -- the visible light you see with your eyes. But this is just one type of light energy. Electromagnetic radiation comes in many wavelengths: radio waves (the longest), infrared, optical, ultraviolet, X-rays and short gamma rays (the shortest, and also the highest form of energy. See more details on these wavelengths at the bottom of this page).
Galaxies, nebulae, stars, trees, microscopic bugs and anything else that can be observed glows with energy at one of these wavelengths.
But in recent decades, researchers have become increasingly convinced that there is a vast amount of material in the universe that does not glow at all. This mysterious "dark matter" is believed by most scientists to be the most common stuff in the universe, perhaps making up 90 percent or more of the total mass.
Pair of Supermassive Black Holes Inhabit Same Galaxy, Destined to Collide
Researchers have known that the galaxy known as NGC 6240 has two bright spots, called nuclei, near its center, based on observations with radio, infrared and optical telescopes. Since the central region of the galaxy is shrouded in dust, however, it cant be observed in much detail.
"They are now spiraling towards each other," Komossa said of that future event. "The final merging of the black holes, to form a single one of larger mass, will be accompanied by an enormous burst of gravitational waves."
These waves will spread through the universe, causing ripples in the fabric of space that astronomers would be able to detect as tiny changes in distance between two points.
When all is said and done, few stars are likely to remain in the vicinity of the merged and more massive black hole.
Wormholes seem to be unstable. If you try to travel through one, it would collapse into a black hole, which kind of sucks," said MIT physicist Max Tegmark.
It might be possible, however, to stabilize wormholes with dark energy, the enigmatic force driving the accelerating expansion of the universe. Of course, since dark energy is a mystery, it remains unknown whether there is any way to actually use it.

My partner in crime Bob Down Under and I have been pulling information from previously posted ATS threads and from across the web, to provide what we believe to be proof of Back Engineering Alien technology and that it is going on right under our noses.
If you are looking for a quick read May I suggest the Encyclopedia Brittanica or War and Peace, because this will be a long thread on subjects ranging from recovered craft to Government cover ups to releasing High Technology into the mainstream consumer markets and the history of how this may have happened and is still taking place to this day.
