Increasingly advanced astronomical observation systems have revealed the shuddering truth about a world of dark, invisible monsters capable of swallowing 10 Suns.
According to the sheet Spacea team of scientists led by Dr. Kareem El-Badry from the Harvard & Smithsonian Astrophysics Center and Harvard University (USA) has identified a The black hole is only 1,560 light years away – one of the closest black holes ever discovered.

It belongs to a star system completely opposite to our world. Around the Sun are 8 planets and many other celestial bodies, many of which could contain life, including a green, populated Earth.
However, around a star identical to ours in the constellation of Ophiuchus, there is only the black hole mentioned above, forming a ghostly and deadly binary star system.
Scientists used data from ESA’s (European Space Agency) Gaia galaxy mapping satellite, analyzing X-ray data to identify the odd couple above. The Gemini Multi-Object Spectrometer located on the Gemini North Observatory (located in Hawaii) was also mobilized, helping to provide precise measurements of the orbital period.
While the “living” star of the binary system is completely similar to the Sun in size and mass, its companion – Black hole Gaia BH1 – 10 times larger.
The two objects revolve around each other at a great distance “Solar copy” still exists even if nearby there is a monster capable of swallowing 10 stars like him.
“This is the first clear detection of a Sun-like star in a wide orbit around a stellar-mass black hole in our galaxy.” – leaf Sci-News quoting Dr. El-Badry.
The research has just been published online in a scientific journal Monthly Notices of the Royak Astronomical Society.
In mid-October, another research group led by the University of Alabama in the United States also announced results on star system – black hole Gaia DR3 – 2,550 light miles away, where a black hole 11.9 times more massive than the Sun forms its companion star “lung laid”.
The two black holes studied in both studies are stellar mass black holes. Although much larger than the Sun, they remain “tiny” in the world of black holes.
The largest of all black holes are monster black holes (supermassive black holes) located at the centers of galaxies. For example, the black hole Sagittarius A* (Sagittarius A*) at the center of the galaxy containing the Milky Way Earth (Milky Way) has a mass equivalent to 4 million Suns.
