A New Black Hole Found.

*A New Black Hole Found*

Using the MPG_ESO 2.2 meter telescope at La-Silla observatory ,a team of astronomers discovered the a black hole lying just 1000 light years from earth.

black hole which has about four times the mass Of the sun,is closer to the solar system than any other found to date.

The invisible object is part of Triple system where it's two components can be seen with naked eyes.

The team originally observed the system called HR6819 ,as part of a study on double-star systems......

However, their observatory revealed the presence of third previous undiscovered body : a black hole

The discovery of black hole in hidden HR6819 provides clues for locating where hidden black holes in the milky way might be

What are Black holes

A black hole is a region of spacetime where gravity is so strong that nothing—no particles or even electromagnetic radiation such as light—can escape from it. The theory of general relativity predicts that a sufficiently compact mass can deform spacetime to form a black hole.

History of black hole

The first modern solution of general relativity that would characterize a black hole was found by Karl Schwarzschild in 1916, although its interpretation as a region of space from which nothing can escape was first published by David Finkelstein in 1958
