US, WASHINGTON (ORDO NEWS) — Black hole closest to Earth found. It is located at a distance of about a thousand light-years from our planet.
According to scientists, this black hole is part of a system of three objects in the constellation of the telescope. Researchers claim that this is the closest object to this kind of Earth.
The black hole was discovered thanks to two neighboring stars, the substance of which it gradually absorbs. It turned out that the mass of the object is four times the mass of the Sun. It is invisible in all parts of the electromagnetic spectrum.
Recall that black holes are objects formed at the final stage of evolution of stars determined by mass. Our Sun, for example, will not turn into a black hole at the end of its path. This is the fate of more massive stars. The gravity of black holes is so strong that even light cannot leave them.
