A ‘glowing’ bubble of gas circles the Milky Way’s giant black hole at breakneck speed

On May 12, 2022, the very first image of the central black hole in our galaxy, Sagittarius A*, was revealed. Scientists have since continued their studies of this supermassive star. And by observing data from the Alma radio telescope, they made a surprising discovery: a bubble of glowing gas is orbiting the black hole at … Read more

The giant black hole at the center of our galaxy has erupted, and astronomers have seen it all!

While studying the supermassive black hole at the center of our galaxy, Sagittarius A*, scientists made a strange discovery: a bubble of glowing gas spinning around it at very high speed! A phenomenon that is explained by the eruption of black holes. On May 12, 2022, the very first image of our central black hole … Read more

Discovery of a black hole jet more than a million light years long!

Observation in wavelengths other than the visible has enabled astronomy and astrophysics to make unprecedented discoveries. We have just obtained new evidence highlighting jets whose length exceeds a million light years and which are emitted by an elliptical galaxy close to the Local Group. These supermassive black hole jets are among the longest known. the … Read more

James-Webb reveals the composition of the gas around a supermassive black hole

Stephan’s Quintet, a visual grouping of five galaxies located in the constellation Pegasus, was among the first images chosen to illustrate the power of the James-Webb Space Telescope in comparison to its predecessor, Hubble. But JWST not only makes it possible to take lavish images, it also performs spectroscopic analyzes that reveal the chemical composition … Read more

This is what the activity of the giant black hole in the middle of the Milky Way would look like

A new technique to account for the rapid flicker of heated, bright matter that falls on the Milky Way’s supermassive black hole has sorted several growth models for this compact star. The model selected by the observations is one of those that can be simulated and therefore gives an idea of ​​what we should see … Read more
