Over 47 million light years away, in a galaxy called NGC 4845, there’s one hungry black hole. In fact, scientists have watched in awe as, soon after it stirred from dormancy, it chomped away at a planet 30 times the mass of Jupiter.
Scientists in the US have successfully used a new NASA telescope to help improve our understanding of how black holes and galaxies evolve. Using data taken by the Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array, or NuSTAR, and the European Space Agency’s XMM-Newton X-ray satellite, scientists were able to measure the spin rate of a black hole with a mass 2 million times that of our Sun.
Look at this star turned into a fire dragon by a single point of nothingness with the mass of three million suns — its body twisted and deformed as a black beast 2.7 billion light-years away devours it with infinite hunger.
If you thought space was a peaceful vacuum, think again: scientists have discovered the fastest winds ever observed on a stellar-mass black hole, and they reach an incredible 32 million kilometres per hour.
Intermediate black holes could tell us how galaxies are formed, as well as how black holes go from teeny tiny to being supermassive.
