Astronomers Discover a Black Hole Devouring the Equivalent of One Earth Per Second

Astronomers Discover a Black Hole , Devouring the Equivalent , of One Earth Per Second. Space.com reports that scientists have detected the fastest-growing black hole ever seen. The black hole has a mass 3 billion times that of the sun and devours the mass equivalent to an entire Earth every second. According to an international research team, the black hole's rapid consumption rate is causing it to grow extremely fast. . The enormous black hole is now 500 times larger than Sagittarius A, the supermassive black hole at the center of the Milky Way galaxy. Space.com reports that other, similarly massive black holes , stopped growing billions of years ago. . Now, we want to know why this one is different  —   did something catastrophic happen?, Christopher Onken, lead researcher at the Research School of Astronomy and Astrophysics at the Australian National University (ANU), via Space.com. Perhaps two big galaxies crashed into each other, funneling a whole lot of material onto the black hole to feed it, Christopher Onken, lead researcher at the Research School of Astronomy and Astrophysics at the Australian National University (ANU), via Space.com. The black hole's rapid accretion of matter is also resulting in a quasar 7,000 times brighter than the light from every star in the Milky Way. The discovery was made by the Siding Spring Observatory in Australia as part of the SkyMapper Southern Sky Survey. . Astronomers have been hunting for objects like this for more than 50 years, Christopher Onken, lead researcher at the Research School of Astronomy and Astrophysics at the Australian National University (ANU), via Space.com. Details of the discovery were published in the journal , 'Publications of the Astronomical Society of Australia.'

Astronomers Capture First Ever Image of Our Galaxy's Supermassive Black Hole [Video]

Astronomers Capture First Ever Image of Our Galaxy's Supermassive Black Hole

Astronomers Capture , First Ever Image of Our Galaxy's , Supermassive Black Hole. 'The Independent' reports that scientists have captured the first image of Sagittarius A, the black hole at the center of our Milky Way galaxy. 'The Independent' reports that scientists have captured the first image of Sagittarius A, the black hole at the center of our Milky Way galaxy. The image provides the first direct evidence that the supermassive black hole actually exists. . The image was captured by the , Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) Collaboration, a global network of radio telescopes. Ziri Younsi from University College London, a co-author on the new papers, described the black hole as the , “the glue that holds the galaxy together”. It is key to our understanding of how the Milky Way formed and will evolve in the future, Ziri Younsi, University College London, via 'The Independent'. Capturing the image took over five years of work by over 300 researchers. . The team hopes that the image can help scientists better understand the event horizon, the very edge of the black hole. The event horizon is the literal edge of space and time – everything we know about space and time breaks down at the event horizon. They don't have any meaning they cease to have any meaning cross it, and you’ll never return, you are causally disconnected, it's a literal edge of the universe, of reality, Ziri Younsi, University College London, via 'The Independent'. And we're starting to see matter now very close to the edge – I think it's amazing that human beings can even have the capacity to visualise that, Ziri Younsi, University College London, via 'The Independent'. The team's findings were published in The Astrophysical Journal Letters
