Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (Center for Astrophysics Harvard & Smithsonian) Researchers have discovered a dynamic supermasive black hole. According to a study published in the journal Astronomy, the supermassive black hole J0437 Plus 2456 travels within the galaxy at 110,000 miles per hour (approximately 177,028 kilometers). Although scientists have long theorized that it can orbit in space, it is difficult to capture a dynamic supermassive black hole. Dominic Pace, an astronomer at the Center for Astrophysics, said: “We do not expect an abundance of dynamic supermassive black holes, which are usually orbiting.” They are difficult to move because they are so heavy.
For the past five years, Pess and his team have been working to observe this rare phenomenon by comparing the speed of spectacular black holes and galaxies. The question arises as to whether black holes have the same speed as the galaxies in which they live. He said, “We expect the same speed from them. If they do not, it means there are disturbances in the black hole. The team continued the search and initially surveyed 10 distant galaxies and their cores.
He specifically studied the black hole containing water inside his accretion disk – the spiral structures that rotate inward into the black hole. As water orbits the black hole, it emits a laser-like ray of light, called a mass. Pace said M / S can help accurately measure the velocity of a black hole when studying a very long baseline interferometry (VLBI) technology using an integrated network of radio antennas. This technology helped the team determine that nine of the supermassive black holes were stagnant, but one was external and dynamic. The black hole, located 23 million light-years from Earth, is located in the center of the galaxy J0437 plus 2456. Its mass is 3 million times that of our Sun.
