Scientists Spot Universe's Fastest-Growing Black Hole

Scientists Spot Universe's Fastest-Growing Black Hole

Astronomers have found the fastest-growing black hole ever discovered.

In this case, the researchers discovered the black hole which, according to their estimates, was as big as 20 billion suns and growing by a percent every one million years. It would appear as an incredibly bright pin-point star that would nearly wash out all of the stars in the sky, "said Christian Wolf, lead author of the study and a researcher from the Australian National University".

Dr Christian Wolf and his team at Australian National University's Research School of Astronomy and Astrophysics were behind the discovery. But astronomers have spotted the fastest growing back hole ever seen and its voracious appetite actually makes it shine nearly inconceivably bright.

Supermassive black holes are incredibly dense areas in the centre of galaxies with masses that can be billions of times that of the sun. Wolf said that the reason is that the large amount of gases it takes in every day causes much heat and friction.

However, it's a good thing our planet is not so close to such a monster black hole.

"We're now trying to get demographics on the most extreme black holes that are out there so we can create a complete inventory".

That leaves Allison, 2017 UDFA Michael Clark or Trevor Davis who has primarily been used a punt returner for the Packers. So, you partner him up with Jimmy Graham and Aaron Rodgers, I think that offense can put up a lot of points".

Using the SkyMapper telescope at the ANU Siding Spring Observatory, researchers were able to detect ultraviolet light radiating billions of light years through space. He has worked as a journalist in Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom, and joined the Times in March 2018.

The black hole is only visible because of its incredible brightness: If it was inside the Milky Way, it would light up more brightly than a full Moon to people on Earth, the astronomers say, making all the other stars in the night sky look dim by comparison. Then, another ANU telescope measured the wavelengths released from the object to verify its composition. This black hole in the latest discussion has been spotted by the Gaia satellite of the European Space Agency, which calculated the small motions of the celestial bodies.

While researchers were looking at the early universe, they stumbled upon this monster black hole.

"Fast-growing supermassive black holes also help to clear the fog around them by ionising gases, which makes the Universe more transparent".

"While objects of this luminosity are exceedingly rare in the Universe, they are particularly valuable as bright background and reference sources in order to study the properties of intervening matter along the line-of-sight, and for directly probing the expansion of our Universe with new instruments in the coming decades", the authors reported.
