Scientists are analysing the gravitational-wave signals provided by LIGO and Virgo interferometer that provide details of a giant black hole which is so huge that until now has been thought to be physically impossible. So far, they have refused to confirm or deny the detection.
Sagittarius A* (Sgr A*) a supermassive black hole at the heart of the Milky Way, suddenly glowed way too brighter than its normal state becoming 75 times more luminescent before going back to its normal state earlier this year.
When scientists ‘photographed’ an invisible black hole: the image captures the area around it, generated from data collected by a set of telescopes, and provides a platform for understanding black holes better.
Black Hole facts: When a particle draws too close to a black hole and the source of the powerful gravitational field, it is stretched into long thin shapes, like pasta. The term spaghettification was coined by Stephen Hawking in his book, A Brief History of Time.
Space scientists unveiled the first-ever photograph of a black hole taken from the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) project earlier this week. The photograph shows the black hole that is located at Messier 87 (M87) galaxy, which is some 55 million light-years away from here.
