General | Latest Info

Black hole, cosmic body of extremely intense gravity from nothing, not even light, can escape. Black holes can be formed by death of massive star. When such star has exhausted internal thermonuclear fuels in its core at end of its life, core becomes unstable and gravitationally collapses inward upon itself, and stars ' outer layers are blown away. Crushing Weight Of Constituent Matter Falling In From All Sides Compresses Dying Star To Point Of Zero Volume And Infinite Density Called Singularity. Black hole in M87 Black hole at centre of massive Galaxy M87, about 55 million light - years from Earth, as imaged by Event Horizon Telescope. Black hole is 6. 5 billion times more massive than Sun. This image was first direct visual evidence of supermassive Black hole and its shadow. Ring Is Brighter On One Side Because Black Hole Is Rotating, And Thus Material On Side Of Black Hole Turning Toward Earth Has Its Emissions Boosted By Doppler Effect. Shadow of Black hole is about five and half times larger than Event Horizon, boundary marking Black hole's limits, where escape velocity is equal to speed of light. Event Horizon collaboration et al. Black hole Artist's rendering of matter swirling Black hole. Dana Berry / SkyWorks Digital / NASA details of structure of Black hole are calculated from Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity. Singularity constitutes centre of Black hole and is hidden by objects surface, Event Horizon. Inside Event Horizon, escape velocity exceeds speed of light, so that not even rays of light can escape into Space. Radius Of Event Horizon Is Called Schwarzschild Radius, After German Astronomer Karl Schwarzschild, Who In 1916 Predicted Existence Of Collapsed Stellar Bodies That Emit No Radiation. Size Of Schwarzschild Radius Is Proportional To Mass Of Collapsing Star. For Black hole, with mass 10 times as great as that of Sun, radius would be 30 km. Only most massive starsthose of more than three solar massesbecome black holes at end of their lives. Stars with smaller amounts of mass evolve into less compressed bodies, either dwarfs or neutron stars. Black holes usually cannot be observed directly on account of both their small size and fact that they emit no light. They can be observe, however, by effects of their enormous gravitational fields on nearby matter. For example, if Black hole is member of binary star system, matter flowing into it from its companion becomes intensely heat and then radiates X - rays copiously before entering Event Horizon of Black hole and disappearing forever. One of component stars of binary X - ray system Cygnus X - 1 is Black hole.

Recent Discoveries

Liu's team originally found object in question when they discovered binary, or two - object system LS V + 22 25, which they describe in peer - review study published Nov. 27 2019 in Nature. They describe system with 70 solar mass black hole and 8 solar mass stars orbiting each other. Star, because it was bright and obvious, was to spot. But allege monster black hole? Not so much. Usually, in systems with stellar - mass black holes, there is bright, X - ray emission shooting out of system that scientists can use to identify it. This emission line is created when black hole accretes, or pulls material from other objects in system. But since LB - 1's black hole doesn't accrete material from its partner star, it doesn't create X - ray emission line, team find. This makes it little trickier to study. So, to identify second object in system, team had to rely on more subtle signature know as H - alpha emission line. This is spectral line, or dark line in object's observe light spectrum that can be used to identify which molecules or atoms make up material it's coming from. Liu's team presumed that this H - alpha emission line was coming from accretion disk, or disk of gas and dust that black hole pulls in from other objects around black hole. By observing how this emission line seems to wobble, they determine orbital motion and size of black hole. But interpretation of this subtle wobbling signature, this H - alpha emission line which led Liu's team to determine existence and massive size of black hole, is main finding other researchers have problem with.

The first seeds

Black holes are enigmatic astronomical objects, areas where gravity is so immense that it has spacetime so that not even light can escape. It was not until detection of quasars, which allowed astronomers to see light emitted by matter falling into black holes, that we had evidence that they were real objects and not just mathematical curiosities predicted by Einstein's general theory of relativity. Most black holes are thought to form when very massive starsthose with more than about 10 times mass of sunexhaust their nuclear fuel and begin to cool and therefore contract. Eventually, gravity wins, and star collapses, igniting cataclysmic supernova explosion and leaving behind black Hole. Astronomers have traditionally assumed that most of black holes powering quasars form this way, too. They could have been born from demise of universe's first stars, which we think formed when primordial gases cooled and fragmented about 200 million years after Big Bang. Population III stars were probably more massive than stars born in later universe, which means they could have leave behind black holes as hefty as several hundred solar masses. These stars also probably in dense clusters, so it is likely that black holes created on their deaths would have merge, giving rise to black holes of several thousand solar masses. Even black holes this large, however, are far smaller than masses needed to power ancient quasars. Theories also suggest that so - called primordial black holes could have arisen even earlier in cosmic history, when spacetime may have been expanding exponentially in process called inflation. Primordial black holes could coalesce from tiny fluctuations in density of universe and then grow as universe expand. Yet these seeds would weigh only between 10 and 100 solar masses, presenting same problem as Population III remnants. As explanation for first quasars, each of these pathways for formation of Black Hole seeds has same problem: seeds would have to grow extraordinarily quickly within first billion years of cosmic history to create earliest quasars. And what we know about growth of black holes tells us that this scenario is highly unlikely.
