by astronomers from the University of North Carolina (UNC)-Chapel Hill Department of Physics and Astronomy Research It is expected to get information on the black hole of our galaxy.
Our ‘Milky Way’ is believed to have been formed from the merger of many small dwarf galaxies. But whether all dwarf galaxies have a supermassive black hole is not yet known, so many scientists are trying to figure out how black holes and galaxies evolve together.
The study, published this week in the Astrophysical Journal, may help complete this understanding. It has been written that it is common to have massive black holes in dwarf galaxies. Although it is difficult to detect them, because the radiation coming out of those black holes becomes a big obstacle in it. Study lead author Mugdha Polimera, a PhD student at UNC-Chapel Hill Said That this result has surprised them, because these black holes were hidden till now.
Study co-writer Professor Sheela Kannappan said that we see black holes only when they are illuminated. This gives us an indication of how many black holes we are not seeing. Kannappan said that the fundamental components of the black holes that have been discovered are the same as the giant black holes of our Milky Way. Scientists hope that through this discovery they will be able to understand the origin of our galaxy. Many other researches are also expected to benefit from this research.
