Geeze; somethin' else to worry about ... :paranoid:
That's pretty unlikely. If you want something more probable to worry about Google "quasi-resonant amplification (QRA) of synoptic-scale waves”

What? I loved that movie when I was a kid.

My mom had a thing for bad 'B' movies and enjoyed humorous overacting.

it's not an image, just a remarkable story ... gravitational waves kicked a supermassive black hole out of a galaxy

Quote:
Researchers estimate that it took the equivalent energy of 100 million supernovas exploding simultaneously to jettison the black hole. The most plausible explanation for this propulsive energy is that the monster object was given a kick by gravitational waves unleashed by the merger of two hefty black holes at the center of the host galaxy.


holy crap that's just an incomprehensible amount of force
