Oldest Black Hole In Our Universe Detected
The James Webb Space Telescope broke new ground. The oldest black hole in our universe has been detected. Details are here!
Black holes are one of the most fascinating and mysterious objects in the universe. These are regions of space where gravity is so strong that nothing, including light, can escape them. The newly discovered black hole is the oldest black hole ever.
Black holes are formed from the remnants of massive stars that consume their fuel and collapse under their own gravity. As they collapse, their density and gravitational forces become so strong that they create a singularity, a point of infinite density and zero volume. Around the singularity is a boundary called the event horizon, beyond which nothing can ever return.
Black holes can range in size from small ones with a few solar masses to supermassive ones located at the center of galaxies with billions of solar masses. Despite their elusive nature, scientists have been studying black holes for decades to understand their properties and role in the universe.
Black Hole Formed Just 570 Million Years After the Birth of the Universe
A groundbreaking discovery has been made by American scientists using the powerful James Webb Space Telescope to reveal the oldest known blackhole, which formed just 570 million years after the birth of the universe. This massive blackhole, with the equivalent of 10 million Suns, provides important information about how these mysterious cosmic beings emerged and evolved. Despite their mysterious nature, scientists believe that supermassive black holes at the center of galaxies may have formed from the merger of small black holes or from the direct collapse of large amounts of gas in the early universe.
Dr. Larsen and his team were observing the brightest galaxy in the early universe, which Hubble had previously detected using the James Webb Space Telescope. By analyzing the different wavelengths of light emitted by the galaxies, the team was able to discover the blackhole lurking in the center of the galaxy.
It is expected that important information will be obtained from the black hole, which will be examined in more detail in the future.
