Magnetic stars responsible for LIGO’s “heavy” stellar-mass black holes?

RMC research assistant (and Queen’s PhD candidate) Zsolt Keszthelyi, in collaboration with RMC Professor of Physics Gregg Wade and an international team of collaborators, propose a novel mechanism - strong magnetic fields at the surfaces of hot stars - leading to the formation of “heavy” stellar-mass black holes as detected by the LIGO (Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory) collaboration in the source GW150914. Their results were recently featured in the popular press.
