10 things a black hole

We just wrote about the ability of black holes to absorb almost any matter in the Universe. However, lately science has been able to discover a whole Arsenal of other various features of these objects. It turns out that not only can they move almost at the speed of light and to show signs of real space killers, destroying and devouring everything in its path, but also to demonstrate a much more flexible behavior than we are accustomed to expect from them. Today let’s talk about what else can these objects.

Very fast spin

Scientists for the first time precisely measured the rotation speed of a supermassive black hole. It affects 84% of the speed of light.

The black hole of the galaxy NGC 1365, located 60 million light-years have amazed researchers with their characteristics. Its diameter is 3.2 million kilometers and its mass is approximately equal to several million solar masses.

When rotating, it literally warps not only space but also time, creating a blazing maelstrom of x-ray radiation, gas and dust falling into its depths. This whole matter, most likely, falls into a black hole from one direction, according to scientists, gives her such incredible speed.

Join groups

The biggest of astronomers discovered galaxies literally seeded supermassive black holes. They are so huge that scientists doubt that their progenitors are single stars. Scientists have long suspected that supermassive black holes can be born in dense star clusters consisting of groups of the dying binary stars or groups of more compact black holes, which eventually merge together to form these supergiants.

Interestingly, the assumption finally found a real confirmation. X-ray analysis of the center of the milky Way showed that directly in the center of our galaxy hides a very tight area, which can be up to 12 black holes rotating around a main Central black hole of the milky Way – Sagittarius A*.

In addition, the analysis showed that in total, the Central region of our galaxy can be located up to 20,000 black holes.

To throw matter the size of Jupiter (sometimes in our direction)

Theoretical calculations and computer modeling suggests that near the Central black hole of our galaxy – Sagittarius A* — can be a very massive star that every 10 thousand years is approaching very close to the hole, which last pulls out her finest substance, forming a long stream of red-hot matter. Part of this material is eaten up by the hole, and the other is ejected into space. However, some of this material remains relatively remote from the hole a distance and is able to merge into a ball the size of a planet. But the most interesting is not even that.

These clubs matter, in some cases, the size of our Neptune, and sometimes reaching the size of Jupiter, released in galactic space at a speed of 3.2 – 32.2 million kilometers per hour. According to the calculations of researchers, the developments of tidal destruction of stars in the cosmos will be thrown about 100 million such phone And maybe some of them will be aimed in our direction.

Hide galactic past

A complex of radio telescopes “Techniques large antenna array of millimeter range” (ALMA) has enabled scientists for the first time, to look well tor the black hole – accumulation of dust and gas revolving around the “mouth” of the galactic monster from the side reminiscent of a doughnut.

The object of the study is 47 million light-years away in the constellation Cetus. Thanks to the amazing power and sensitivity of ALMA, scientists have even calculated its width. It is about 20 light years. Watching tori black holes, the researchers can learn more about the past of galaxies. For example, the asymmetrical shape of the torus suggests that the galaxy might merge with another galaxy at some period of its history in the past.

Absorb matter with incredible speed

In a billion light-years away toward the constellation coma Berenices is a very bright galaxy PG211+143. Its brightness galaxy owes the Central black hole, which absorbs matter from outer space with incredible speed of 100,000 kilometers per second.

The researchers found that the x-ray emission of this galaxy shows significant redshift, which can be explained by the motion of matter the galaxy straight into the side of the Central supermassive black hole with enormous speed about 30 percent of the speed of light. This gas is almost not rotating around the black hole, and moves directly to the center in a straight line, being incredibly close to the black hole the distance of only 20 dimensions black hole.

To wander the cosmos

Astronomers long assumed that black holes can sometimes be ejected from their galaxies. And very strong evidence of this assumption, as it turned out, is about 8 billion light years from us. It is quasar 3C 186, having a mass of one billion solar.

Scientists discovered that the quasar on all pairs tend to leave their native galactic cluster. According to calculations, the gas cloud quasar is carried away at a speed of 7.6 million kilometers per hour. At this speed, for example, from the earth to the moon can be reached in just 3 minutes.

Astronomers believe that the reason for this “escape” the gravitational waves are the product of the merger of two supermassive black holes. As a result of this merger, they created a powerful shock wave, strength comparable to the simultaneous explosion of 100 million supernova, which literally pushed the quasar with his “familiar” places.

To steal from larger relatives

At the moment, astronomers not only confirmed the five events mergers of black holes and of the produced gravitational waves, but also singled out one of them, stand out from the crowd. We are talking about the merger of two black holes whose mass according to the forecasts, was supposed to be 10-15 solar. In fact, it turned out that the mass of both black holes is more than 20 solar masses.

After analyzing the collected data the scientists came to the conclusion that both black holes have gained weight due to the fact that stealing “food” from a much bigger black hole, located in the neighborhood of the galactic center.

Before becoming a black hole these thieves were the two massive stars. In the course of stellar evolution, they collapsed into black holes and began to gravitate towards the galactic center, where there were already supermassive black hole, absorbing the surrounding gas and dust. Two “crumbs” have managed to steal part of the matter from the Central black hole and scored almost three times more mass from its original size before merge with each other.

To use magnetic fields for food

According to astronomers, one of the main factors that determine the black hole mass can be its magnetic field. Exploring the galaxy, Cygnus A, located 600 million light years away, scientists have discovered in its galactic center is very strong magnetic field.

Further analysis showed that the black hole of Cygnus A is very active. Scientists believe that it is the most powerful extragalactic radio source in its constellation, which is created as a result of absorption of a hole in the surrounding matter. In this case, the researchers say, involved the active participation of its magnetic field, which attracts matter to the Torah of the black hole, and then into the subsoil.

According to astronomers, the difference between active galaxies such as Cygnus A, and inactive galaxies such as our milky Way, lies in the presence and absence of magnetic field.

To hide in tiny galaxies

In the galaxy Fornax UCD3 in the constellation Oven is only 100 million stars. This is a real baby compared to the same Milky Way, which presumably can be hundreds of billions of stars. The radius of the galaxy Fornax UCD3 is only some 300 light-years. Despite its tiny size, “ultra-compact dwarf” UCD3 is one of the densest galaxies in the Universe.

At its center is a supermassive black hole with 3 to 5 million solar masses. She is almost as heavy as the black hole Sagittarius a* at the center of our milky Way, whose diameter is about 150,000 light years.

The discovery of a black hole UCD3 was only the fourth case of the detection of supermassive black holes within ultra-compact galaxies. Astronomers have calculated that the share of the holes accounts for 4 percent of the total mass of the galaxy. Usually in any other case, this share is only 0.3 percent.

Scientists suspect that early galaxy UCD3 was more, but the proximity to a larger galaxy Fornax UCD3 has deprived large numbers of its stars, turning to the dwarf.

To eat our Sun for two days

Astronomers have discovered an amazingly voracious black hole, born about 12 billion years ago. Discovered quasar every other day absorbs the mass equivalent to one solar. Because of this appetite, the black hole is growing so fast that its radiation is thousands of times brighter than an entire galaxy. The radiation occurs due to heating of matter and gases, which it absorbs.

Scientists do not yet understand how the black hole of the “dark ages” so rapidly has gained her a lot, but understands its potential.

If that monster was in the center of our milky Way, its brightness exceeded 10 times the brightness of the full moon in the sky. The object would be so bright that it eclipsed the light of the larger number of stars in the sky, and would have killed us all his x-rays.

  1. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible

    Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all igions under the worship of one God

    Biblical prophecy tells us that this Jewish Messiah who will take the stage will be the antichrist who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God (2 Thessalonians 2:4) For a time he will bring about a false peace, but Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (Matthew 24:15) then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be (Matthew 24:21)

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically in Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name

    Here is wisdom Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it Revelation 13:11-18 tells us that a false prophet will arise on the world scene doing miracles before men, deceiving them to receive this Mark Do not be deceived! We must grow strong in Jesus AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11)

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we needed two key things One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast

    Visit WWW BIBLEFREEDOM COM to see proof for these things and why the Bible truly is the word of God!

    If you haven’t already, it is time to seek God with all your heart Jesus loves you more than you could imagine He wants to have a ationship with you and redeem you from your sins Turn to Him and repent while there is still hope! This is forever God bless!


    We all know God exists Why? Because without Him, we couldn’t prove anything at all Do we live our lives as if we cannot know anything? No So why is God necessary? In order to know anything for certain, you would have to know everything, or have revelation from somebody who does Who is capable of knowing everything? God So to know anything, you would have to be God, or know God

    A worldview without God cannot account for the uniformity and intelligibility of nature And why is it that we can even reason that God is the best explanation for this if there is no God? We are given reason to know or reject God, but never to know that He does not exist

    It has been calculated by Roger Penrose that the odds of the initial conditions for the big bang to produce the universe that we see to be a number so big, that we could put a zero on every particle in the universe, and even that would not be enough to use every zero What are the odds that God created the universe? Odds are no such thing Who of you would gamble your life on one coin flip?

    Is there evidence that the Bible is the truth? Yes Did you know that the creation accounts listed in the book of Genesis are not only all correct, but are also in the correct chronological order? That the Bible doesn’t say the Earth was formed in six 24-hour days but rather six long but finite periods of time? That the Bible makes 10 times more creation claims than all major holy books combined with no contradictions, while these other books have errors in them? The Bible stood alone by concurring with the big bang saying, In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth (Genesis 1:1); and says our universe is expanding, thousands of years before scientists discovered these things Watch a potential life-changing video on the front page of WWW BIBLEFREEDOM COM with Astronomer(PhD) Hugh Ross explaining all these facts based on published scientific data He has authored many books, backed even by atheist scientists

    Jesus came to pay a debt that we could not; to be our legal justifier to reconcile us back to a Holy God; only if we are willing to receive Him: For the wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23)

    God so loved the world that He gave us His only begotten son, so that whoever believes in Him, through faith, shall not perish, but have everlasting life Jesus says if we wish to enter into life to keep the commands! The two greatest commands are to love God with all your heart, soul, strength, and mind; and your neighbor as yourself All the law hang on these commands We must be born of and lead by the Holy Spirit, to be called children of God, to inherit the kingdom If we are willing to humble ourselves in prayer to Jesus, to confess and forsake our sins, He is willing to give the Holy Spirit to those who keep asking of Him; giving us a new heart, leading us into all truth!

    Jesus came to free us from the bondage of sin The everlasting fire was prepared for the devil and his angels due to disobedience to God’s law If we do the same, what makes us any different than the devil? Jesus says unless we repent, we shall perish For sin is the transgression of the law We must walk in the Spirit so we may not fulfill the lusts of the flesh, being hatred, fornication, drunkenness and the like Whoever practices such things will not inherit the kingdom (Galatians 5:16-26) If we sin, we may come before Jesus to ask for forgiveness (1 John 2:1-2) Evil thoughts are not sins, but rather temptations It is not until these thoughts conceive and give birth by our own desires that they become sin (James 1:12-15) When we sin, we become in the likeness of the devil’s image, for he who sins is of the devil (1 John 3:8); but if we obey Jesus, in the image of God For without holiness, we shall not see the Lord (Hebrews 12:14)

    The oldest igion in the world is holiness through faith (James 1:27) What igion did Adam and Eve follow before the fall? Jesus, Who became the last Adam, what igion does He follow? Is He not holy? He never told us to follow the rituals and traditions of man but to take up our cross and follow Him (Luke 9:23) There are many false doctrines being taught leading people astray This is why we need the Holy Spirit for discernment Unlike igion, holiness cannot be created It is given to us from above by the baptism of the Spirit Jesus is more than a igion; He is about having a personal ationship with the Father Start by reading the Gospel of Matthew, to hear the words of God, to know His character and commandments Follow and obey Jesus, for He is the way, the truth, and the life!
