NASA’s powerful space mission discovered another near-Earth black hole, but the overall number of black holes discovered in the Milky Way galaxy is significantly greater than the total number of black holes ever discovered.
Black holes are categorised into many kinds based on features such as volume. Some folks weigh 100 to 1000 times more than our bodies. Medium-sized black holes have been discovered in other galaxies.
More than 150 globular clusters are estimated to circle our Milky Way galaxy, but astronomers believe that millions of black holes in this galaxy remain undetected. The movement of stars in close proximity to black holes can be utilized to identify them.
NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope has found an exceptionally dense core object with an estimated 800 solar masses in the adjacent globular star cluster Messier 4 that researchers agree is nothing more than a black hole. no
Although direct observation of the suspected black hole has not yet been possible, its presence can be inferred from the velocity of the stars that it is thought to affect. Furthermore, black holes can be located on the outskirts of neighboring galaxies and in globular star clusters.
According to scientists, the discovery of what looks to be a medium-sized black hole supports the evidence for the existence of this unusual sort of black hole and will help us understand how they arise and are disseminated throughout the universe.
The putative black hole detected in Messier 4 is considered to be 6,000 light-years away from Earth, adding a new black hole to the collection of objects close to our planet.
