Black holes, a product of our universe, are always fascinating to discover as they contain answers to many unanswered questions that astronomers have been waiting for. As we all know that a lot is happening in our universe, be it events in the cosmic world or something new about black holes. In one such case, the European Southern Observatory (ESO) showed the death of a star sucked into a black hole.
The European Southern Observatory (ESO) shared a video on its YouTube page showing “Death by Spaghetti: Artistic Animation of a Star Being Drawn into a Black Hole”
According to the European Southern Observatory (ESO), a team of astronomers found in a new study done with the help of ESO’s Very Large Telescope and ESO’s New Technology Telescope that if a black hole devours a star, A powerful explosion can trigger material outward.
In early September, a team of international scientists, led by Indian scientists, found a characteristic signature of cosmic X-rays to identify the boundary around black holes that “unmistakably” separate them from other objects in the cosmos such as neutron stars, which are comparable in mass and size.
According to astrophysicists, including Sudip Bhattacharyya from the Tata Institute for Basic Research (TIFR) in Mumbai, the current discovery is by far the strongest steady signature of the smaller but more extreme stellar-mass black holes from the cosmic X rays observed with a satellite.
Although black holes have no surface, they are confined to an invisible border called the event horizon, from which nothing, not even light, can escape, the scientists said.
While the definitive evidence for the existence of such objects is a holy grail of modern physics and astronomy, they said that to date only one supermassive black hole with a mass more than six billion times the mass of the Sun using the surrounding radiation on radio was mapped wavelengths.
