Astronomers Discovered Thousands of Black Holes at the Center of Milky Way

Astronomers announced the discovery of thousands of black holes last months, at the center of the Milky Way. The data was provided by NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory. “This black hole bounty consists of stellar-mass black holes” which are estimated to be five to 30 times the mass of our Sun. These new black holes were discovered within three light years of the supermassive black hole at our Galaxy’s center, called Sagittarius A*.

A Star Passes Black Hole: At last Scientists Have Chance Testing Einstein’s Theory of General Relativity

Scientist were waiting to this special moment about many years. Continuously for several months astronomers are planning to focus on their telescopes to Sagittarius A*, the Supermassive black hole at the center of our galaxy. A Star is cycling by closely orbiting star, which is probably considering that it is testing Einstein’s theory of general relativity. S-02 Star, which is the name of this star, closely orbits Sagittarius A*. However, S-02 is unique because it is one of the two stars that zoom in the closest to the supermassive black hole in its elliptical orbit, that is to say it is likely to show the effects and results of black hole’s enormous gravitational pull.

The Biggest Black Holes are Outgrowing Their Galaxies

The biggest black holes are growing faster than the rate of stars being formed in their galaxies, in accordance with two new studies using data from NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory and other telescopes. More than many years, astronomers have collected data on the arrangement of stars in galaxies and the growth of the biggest black holes (that is, those with millions or billions the mass of the Sun) in their centers.
