Scientists have found out that one of largest known black holes in Universe, which is around 34 billion times mass of Sun, devours almost one Sun's worth of mass every day. This is also fastest-growing black hole in entire Universe as of now, due to which it has been classified as ultramassive black hole. According to astronomer Christopher Onken of Australian National University, black holes mass is also about 8 000 times bigger than black hole in centre of Milky Way. If Milky Ways hole wanted to grow that fat, it would have to swallow two thirds of all stars in our galaxy, he add. This black hole was discovered back in 2018 and is located at centre of galaxy called SMSS J215728. 21-360215. 1, which billions of light-years away from us. At time when black hole was discover, it had mass of around 20 billion Solar masses and had accretion rate of at least half Solar mass day. Since then, astronomers have made new measurements and, according to revised numbers J2157 *, black hole has Schwarzschild radius of around 670 Astronomical units. It is over five times size of our Solar System.

It is beaten by ultramassive black hole with size of around 40 billion Solar masses located at heart of galaxy Holm 15A, around 700 million light-years away. There is also ultramassive black hole powering quasar TON 618 at 66 billion Solar masses, 10. 4 billion light-years away.

Origin Story

It is truism of modern astronomy that every galaxy has hungry heart, to paraphrase Bruce Springsteen, in form of massive black hole gulping gas, dust and even stars. Astronomers in Canberra say they have found hungriest heart in all cosmos. It is black hole 20 billion times mass of sun eating equivalent of star every two days. Black Hole Is Growing So Rapidly, Says Christian Wolf, Of Australian National University, Who Led Team That Found It In Depths Of Time, That It Is Probably 10 000 Times Brighter Than Galaxy It Lives In. It is so bright, that it is dazzling view and we can't see galaxy itself. He and his colleagues announce discovery in paper to be published in Publications of Astronomical Society of Australia. Black holes are one-Way gate to gravitational oblivion, according to Einstein's theory of general relativity, but they can only swallow so much, depending on their size; rest of matter and energy splash out across space, producing fireworks popularly known as quasars. Blaze Of Material Swirling Around This Newly Observed Drainpipe Into Eternity Known Officially As SMSS J215728. 21-360215. 1 is as luminous as 700 suns, according to Wolf and his collaborators. If it were at centre of our own galaxy, Milky Way, it would be 10 times brighter than moon and bathe Earth in so many X-ray that life would be impossible.

Scary but useful

Black holes are far from being most kind or behaving objects in galaxy, its enormous power, also brings you absolute freedom to do away with anyone who dare to confront them, and even among themselves. Sagittarius *, despite all its goodness, does not fail to demonstrate violence, especially with gas, which accelerates to 30 percentage of speed of light, perhaps way to release hatred and natural hunger from black hole, which, in truth, every black hole does All black holes in Universe, without too many exceptions, prefer simply to devour gas, as it is not only great for growing rapidly, it does not affect any object, or perhaps not many objects, because some black holes devour gas so quickly that they create quasars or relativistic jets, which are no danger to any object that is not in its path, but may end up with entire galaxy, as MS 0735. 6 + 7421 * do. But despite this preference, not very common, but Earth has already detected several stars and other objects being annihilated and devoured by black holes; this practice is not correct, and Intergalactic Community is always quick to declare this, so that without much complaint, black holes can eat everything, as long as it do not affect many lives that have nothing to do with it, like most of stars that Sagittarius * are criminals ignore and reject by every society. But again, since case of MS 0735. 6 + 7421 *, Earth has never again observed case of so many stars being consume, for, curious fact about them is that they can choke, and create quasars, Black holes usually have endless hunger, but neither can they eat everything without limitations, like NGC 4845 *, which planet, and was already beginning to create flares and some jets. Perhaps most well-know case of most hungry black hole is SMSS J215728. 21-360215. 1 consuming about two suns, every two Earth days at huge rate, It is black hole that consumes gas faster and stars around him, but in way, not one that grows most, This title is for S5 0014 + 81 *.
