The study, based on observations made with NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope, showing that black holes can cause their formation as well as swallowing stars has been published in the journal Nature.
The study revealed how the black hole in the Henize 2-10 galaxy, 30 million light-years away, is effective in the formation of stars.
Amy Reines, principal investigator of the current study, who presented the first evidence for the existence of a black hole in the Henize 2-10 galaxy in 2011, said: “I knew from the beginning that there was something unusual and special about Henize 2-10, now we have a Hubble black hole and black hole 230 “It provided a very clear picture of the connection between a star forming region light-years away.”
Reines stated that this development will also contribute to solving the mystery of how black holes emerged in the universe.
The lead author of the study, Zachary Schutte, stated that the Hubble Space Telescope has captured evidence and images showing that the black hole caused the “birth” of stars. Stating that the black hole does not suppress the birth of stars, on the contrary, it provides an outward flow of stars, Schutte said that this was a “surprise”.
The Hubble Space Telescope, developed jointly by NASA with the European Space Agency (ESA) and the Space Telescope Science Institute (STScl), has been making space observations in Earth orbit since 1990, when it was launched into space.
Black holes observed to date are known for swallowing stars.
