The scientists were left wondering whether the maths is after is a giant black hole, is 70 times the size of the sun have been discovered.
Stellar black holes are formed due to the collapse of a massive star’s life. The masses of the individual stellar black hole in our own milky way galaxy has long been estimated at more than 20 times that of the Sun, according to researchers.
Now, however, an international team of scholars under the supervision of Prof. dr. Liu Jifeng, of the National Astronomical Observatory of China, Chinese Academy of Sciences (NAOC), it has been discovered that there is a monster, stellar black hole with a mass of 70 times that of the Sun.
FIRST, THE BLACK HOLE IMAGE IS REVEALED
“The black holes of these masses may not even exist in our Galaxy, according to current models of stellar evolution,” said the Professor. Liu, in a statement.

“We had to be very massive stars with a chemical composition that is typical of our Galaxy, the milky way should be to shed the majority of their gas in a strong stellar winds, as they reach the end of their lives,” She added. “That’s why they should not get behind such a massive, on the other hand. LB-1 is twice as massive as we might have thought. Now, researchers have to take on the challenge of communicating the information.”
The ‘black hole’, by the name, LB-1, is 15,000 light-years away. The use of a light-year, which measures the distance in space is equal to 6 trillion miles.
3 IS A BLACK HOLE, ABLE TO SEE THE COOKING OF THEIR GALAXIES, LIFE,
In a paper on the discovery was published in the journal Nature.
The researchers made the discovery with the help of China’s Large Sky Area Multi-Object Fiber Spectroscopic Telescope (LAMOST). The telescope is for the stars that are moving around an unseen object, which can be drawn out by the force of gravity, according to scientists. Earlier, a stellar black hole can only be detected through the identification of the X-ray emission, when they are eaten, the gas of a companion star.
After the ‘black hole’ was seen by LAMOST, the Gran Telescopio Canarias in Spain, and the Keck I telescope, in the USA, and were used to determine the physical parameters.
FAR-AWAY, ALIEN PLANET, WITH THREE RED SUNS IS DISCOVERED
In their statement, the experts note that the discovery of the LB-1 will” fit nicely” with the new breakthroughs in astrophysics and the detection of ripples in space-time caused by black-hole collisions in distant galaxies. The ripples have been identified by means of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) in the US and the Virgo gravitational wave detector in Italy.
“This is a remarkable result, together with the LIGO-Virgo observations of binary black hole collisions in the last four years, are really pointing in the direction of a new renaissance in our understanding of black hole astrophysics,” said LIGO’s Director, Prof. dr. David Reitze, University of Florida, in a statement.
WHAT IS A BLACK HOLE?
Earlier this year, in a separate project, researchers released the first-ever image of a black hole, and find a distant object down to the smallest detail.
The ground-breaking image created by the Event Horizon Telescope, a global project, in which telescopes in the world, which describes itself as “a virtual Earth-sized telescope.” Telescopes in Hawaii, Arizona, Chile, Mexico, Spain and the south pole and took part in the ambitious project.

The black hole in question was spotted in the galaxy Messier 87 (M87), which is 55 million light-years away.
