A gigantic black hole travels through space at a speed of 177,000 kilometers per hour


In the study of researchers from the Harvard-Smithsonian Astrophysics Center, the results of which were published in the “Astrophysical Journal”, the motions of supermassive black holes in the universe were examined.

As part of the study, scientists who conducted research in 10 distant galaxies determined that the black hole in one of the galaxies was moving.

Scientists determined that a huge black hole with a mass greater than 3 million times the sun in the center of the galaxy called “JO437 + 2456”, 230 million light-years away from Earth, moves at a speed of approximately 177 thousand kilometers per hour, and put forward theories about the reason for this movement.

Scientists noted that the movement may have resulted from the birth of two supermassive black holes from a supermassive black hole, or the merger of two black holes to form a new black hole.

On the other hand, scientists also emphasize the possibility that a black hole has a “binary system” that does not revolve around a planet or a celestial body, but is defined as a state of rotation around each other because their masses are equal or close to each other.
