Astrophysicists have been studying the inception of Black Holes for quite some time now. On August 28, Laser Interferometre Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) in an astonishing observation noted two separate gravitational waves, that came just 21 minutes apart from each other. Two gravitational waves have never been recorded on the same day by scientists prior to this. "This is freaky. Perhaps the simplest explanation - barring an instrumental or data handling issue - is that this is the first gravitationally lensed gravitational wave detection. Non-scientists, this is a genuine 'Uh, wait, what?' We've never seen that before’ moment in gravitational wave astronomy (sic),” Express.co.uk quoted Astrophysicist Robert Routledge as saying.
Another expert from North western University Christopher Berry according to Express.co.uk said: "In case you were suspicious of two events close in time with S190828l and S190828j, they sky localisations are similar, but distinct (you might expect them to overlap for a gravitationally lensed signal, but that doesn’t seem to be the case)."
In space, there are millions of celestial bodies including asteroids, meteors, comets, black holes and UFOs about which we really don’t know much. It can be only said that these celestial bodies can harm the Earth and the whole galaxy as well. Talking specifically about black holes, it is a region of space-time exhibiting gravitational acceleration so strong that nothing—no particles or even electromagnetic radiation such as light—can escape from it. In the space, black holes are one of the most complex entities.
Recently, News Nation apprised you with the supermassive black hole named V616 Monocerotis, which is the closest to our Earth at a distance of just 3,300 light-years away. It is worth mentioning here that supermassive black holes like V616 are monstrous wells of gravity, typically found at the dead centre of galaxies. And now, a study by Japanese astrophysicists that there could be up to 100 million black holes hiding throughout the Milky Way.
Yes, you read it right. The astrophysicists presented the shocking claim in a study, pre-published on the archiving website Arxiv. The Japanese researchers assume that the Milky Way is heavily populated with a particular type of black hole that is incredibly hard to detect.
