The Very Large Telescope in the Atacama Desert helped scientists at the European Southern Observatory find a young
The object is located in the cluster NGC 1850, which in turn lies about 160,000 light-years from us. The discovered black hole is eleven times the size of the Sun.
For the search, the scientists used a dynamic method. It involves recording the effect that a black hole has on nearby stars.
Astronomers have previously found such black holes inother galaxies, capturing X-rays or gravitational waves that occur when black holes collide with each other or with neutron stars. But usually the dynamic method is used for searching. In the future, he is supposed to help scientists learn more about the origin of young black holes.</ p>
