Currently, more than a hundred holes have been discovered, and more than twenty have been studied. It became known that astronomers were able to detect an invisible black hole for the first time.
The authors of the work said that such objects are transparent in theory, since they absorb the surrounding photons of light. However, the discovered hole does not interact with the environment in any way. For this reason, it is difficult to determine in space, as it emits weak gravitational waves.
This discovered black hole is the first of its kind. Against this background, a black hole is of great interest to the scientific community, as it allows us to study the processes of their formation. In theory, they will reveal the secret to the nature of origin.
It is reported that the study was carried out using Hubble images, and the work lasts about two years.
If you travel through a black hole, where do you go? The simple answer to all of these questions is, as Professor Richard Massey explains, “Who knows?” As a Royal Society research fellow at the Institute for Computational Cosmology at Durham University, Massey is fully aware that the mysteries of black holes run deep.
“Falling through an event horizon is literally passing beyond the veil — once someone falls past it, nobody could ever send a message back,” he said.
Over the years scientists have looked into the possibility that black holes could be wormholes to other galaxies. They may even be, as some have suggested, a path to another universe.
In the future, a group of astronomers plans to organize a project that will allow us to discover more detailed study of an unusual space object.
