Black holes should be eaten to survive, and any matter or object close to their force field is consumed. They destroy and destroy this matter.
Hubble scientists, therefore, were very confused and surprised when they found a black hole that could be considered "hungry" with a disk around it.
The black hole is located in the center of the spiral galaxy – NGC 3147, located at a distance of 130 million light-years. This galaxy is considered to be a low-light galaxy, which means that there is not enough substance gravitating to feed its black hole. There should not be a disk on it.
This black hole now gives scientists the opportunity to test the theory of relativity of Albert Einstein, which is a combination of two theories – general and special theory of relativity. The disc is so deeply embedded in the gravitational field of the black hole that the light from the disk is changing, giving astronomers a look at the dynamic processes that are close to the black hole.
"We have never seen the effects of both general and special relativity in a visible light with such clarity," said team member Marco Chiaberga of AURA for ESA, STScI and Johns Hopkins University. said in a statement.
The researchers used the Hubble Space Telescope (STIS) to study a substance that spins deep inside this disc.
Astronomers chose this galaxy to prove the adopted models of low-light galaxies and their hungry black holes.
"The type of drive we see is a diminished quasar that we did not expect to exist," explained Yankees in the statement. – This is the very type of disk that we see in objects that are 1000 or even 100,000 times luminous. Forecasts of modern models for very weak active galaxies clearly failed. "
Quasar is a large but remote object in a space that produces a lot of energy and is said to have a supermassive black hole in its center.
Hubble Telescope is a collaboration between the US space agency NASA and the European Space Agency (ESA).
Conclusion about this the research is published in the scientific journal Monthly reports from the Royal Astronomical Society.
