A huge black hole has leaked into our galaxy

It has a mass of more than 4 million suns and is safely absorbing the matter surrounding the center of our galaxy. Sagittarius A* It is an unusual black hole that has kept scientists awake for decades as it determines the most important events in the history of formation Milky Way.

Getting to know her better will allow us to discover many mysteries around her The solar system and the earth itself In this way, we will be able to understand the strangest mechanisms of the expansion of the universe. Since these things are usually similar to each other, we may come closer to discovering the causes of the uprising the great explosion.

In the meantime, everything points to that Our black hole is leaking. At least, such news came from astronomers working for the Hubble Space Telescope at the University of North Carolina. This giant absorbs infinite amounts of matter every day. However, this phenomenon is usually not seen

When it’s completely different A black hole will attract more powerful objectslike a star. Then a powerful jet is emitted. They are often thrown into space for great distances. We’re talking about even 500 light years (A light year is 9.5 trillion kilometers). Astronomers believe that with Sagittarius A* this happens every few thousand years.

The black hole at the center of the Milky Way is not as powerful as the one we’ve discovered so far, so it’s Amazing biological phenomena They rarely appear, but they can be just as amazing. Astronomers figured out when the last such event occurred. They calculated this by observing a bright hydrogen cloud. The jet plane was supposed to deform it about 2,000 years ago.

However, Sagittarius A* is not as peaceful a place as we think. This shows the latest astronomical research by the Hubble Chandra Space Telescope and VLA A black hole can increase its brightness (Light from accretion disk) up a million times in the last million years. Astronomers explain that in the future its activity will increase as it begins to absorb more and more matter.
