Index – Science and Technology – Nine billion years ago, no black hole grew

The Australian National University (ANU) said on Wednesday that the fastest-growing black hole in the past nine billion years was discovered by an international group of scientists led by Australian astronomers.

The black hole, which has a mass of three billion solar masses, consumes the equivalent of Earth every second and shines seven thousand times brighter than all the lights in our galaxy combined.

Astronomers have been searching for such celestial bodies for more than fifty years. Faint thousands were found, but this amazing shining body had gone unnoticed until now

“The black hole in the haystack” is a “huge and unexpected needle,” said Christopher Onken, a researcher at the Australian National University, who described the “black hole in the haystack”. Now they want to know what makes it different from the rest. It is believed that two large galaxies collided, feeding the black hole a lot of material

They are not likely to find any more

Christian Wolf, co-author of a study published on arXiv.org and also published in the Australian Astronomical Society, described the black hole as an outstanding value with a term borrowed from statistics, adding that he didn’t think they could find another.

We are sure that this record will not be broken. We’ve practically run out of heaven where these things can be hidden

said the astronomer.

According to the researchers, the black hole is five hundred times the size of the black hole of our galaxy, and under the right conditions, anyone can see it with a better telescope.
