A black hole and a supernova?

  1. Feb 22, 2012 #1

    This is a question that i've been contemplating for the last few days. I was watching a video about black holes & supernova, and I am wondering what would happen if a black hole were to reach a star at the exact moment that it "turned into" a supernova?

    What would happen if that supernova turned into a black hole and the two black holes collided? Would it form one large black hole?
