Astronomers in the United States and Europe have announced that they have detected a medium-mass black hole for the first time. The gravitational wave detection study, involving more than 1,500 researchers, showed that about 7 billion years ago, two black holes, 66 times the mass of the sun and 85 times the mass of the sun, formed a new medium-mass black hole after a violent collision. It is also the first medium-mass black hole ever detected by humans.
Medium-mass black holes are between star-like and supermassive black holes, 100 to 1,000 times the mass of the sun. The medium-mass black hole detected this time is 142 times the mass of the sun.
Studying black holes will help humans understand the evolution of the universe and ultimately the origin of human beings themselves. So this important discovery has undoubtedly re-inspired a strong curiosity about black holes, the most mysterious objects in the universe.
Black hole: Devour everything as soon as you get close
When it comes to black holes, many people think of the movie Interstellar Crossing for the first time. In order to save mankind, the hero righteously rushed into that dark, and eventually fell to close to the singly five-dimensional space, to achieve space-time travel.
What exactly is a black hole that is mysterious and distant, but is likely to keep the secret of human origin?
If the entire universe is running as an upgrade game, then the black hole is the strongest BOSS known in the field, and once the other players get close, they are immediately engulfed by it, and even light can’t escape.
How is the open super capability of a black hole practiced?
Studies have shown that when a star continues to age, runs out of fuel and energy for nuclear fusion, and can no longer support the enormous weight of its shell, the star rapidly collapses indefinitely toward the center point of its own, forming a powerful dark vortex that distorts the surrounding space-time until it finally forms a near-infinitely small, dense but almost infinite star, a black hole called a singlar.
Take the Earth we live on, if it becomes a black hole, the Earth, which is more than 12,700 kilometers in diameter, compresses itself into a penny coin size.
Eight telescopes team up to take pictures of black holes
It is well known that black holes can devour even light, so how was this picture taken?
The first photograph of a human black hole was taken by sub-millimeter-wave and millimeter-wave telescopes in eight parts of the world, together forming a virtual telescope with a diameter of 10,500 kilometers, almost earth-diameter, by observing electromagnetic wave signals from the M87 black hole’s suction disk. And it’s a beautiful photo of a black hole painted in orange that symbolizes hope and warmth.
In this cynical system, black holes are devouring the stars next to them, and the gas from the torn stars accelerates on the outer edge of the vortex before being swallowed up, forming a circular disk, known as a accretation disk. And when the dark vortex inhales too much gas, the gas that has not been sucked up will be ejaculation at high speed along the upper and lower axes of the suction disk, forming a “cosmic column of fire”, which is the jet stream.
The black hole’s suction disks and jets continue to radiate various types of electromagnetic waves into space, which are captured by Earth’s telescopes, and humans indirectly outline the black hole.
Black Hole Photo Taker: Next year or the Milky Way Black Hole Photo
In fact, the supermassive black holes in the Milky Way, pictured with the M87 galaxy, are about 4.3 million times the mass of the sun and 3,400 light-years from Earth. It is also the closest supermassive black hole to Earth. When will we get a glimpse of what it really looks like?
Shepard Dorman, head of the Event Vision Telescope Project, the Black Hole Shooting Project, gave the answer at the just-concluded 3rd World Forum of Leading Scientists in Shanghai.
Shepard Dorman also said they were not content to just take pictures of black holes and would strive to be able to show them video in the future.
Will the Milky Way black hole, as our closest supermassive black hole, the solar system, and even Earth meet this cosmic boss in the future?
Can you retreat across a black hole?
What if one day the Earth meets a black hole? Can we just walk away like Cooper, the star of the movie Star Trek?
