Abell 2261 is home to more compact galaxies and is considered one of the largest structures in the universe. At the center of the cluster is the incredibly bright galaxy A2261-BCG, which has the largest galactic nucleus currently discovered by astronomers, about 10,000 light years across.
Such “dimensions” are due to the presence of a huge black hole in it. The galactic core A2261-BCG emits powerful radiation containing a diffuse mist of dazzling starlight.
Despite the use of modern powerful Hubble and Chandra telescopes, researchers have not yet been able to detect at least some traces of a black hole that disappeared from radar.
A team of astronomers led by Kayhan Gultakin from the University of Michigan suggested that she could simply be “thrown” out of the galaxy, but where, in that case, she is now – is not known. But that’s just theory.
Black holes consume everything in the universe. Is there something mysterious that could devour a black hole?
