Around 750 million of light years from the atmosphere Earth is a huge, expanding galaxy with gigantic black holes at the center. These can be considered among black holes which are the largest till date having a combined mass which is 15 billion times greater than that of the Sun. The latest research from Stanford University which was published on June 27th, 2017 in the renowned Astrophysical Journal, has applied the long-term observations in order to show that one black hole appears to be orbiting around the other black hole.
If this fact is confirmed, it is the first couple of the black holes that ever presented to be in motion relative to each other. It happens to be potential, the recorded movement of the least magnitude of a celestial object in the solar system which is also known and the angular motion.
“ If you can imagine a snail on the latest discovered planet which appears like the Earth that orbits around the Proxima Centauri which is around four light years of distance, and is making its motions at a centimeter per second, which is the the angular motion that we are working for resolution now” as stated by Roger W. Romani, who is a professor of Physics and the co-author of the paper at Stanford. The research team also involved the researchers from the National Radio Observatory, the United States Naval Observatory and the University of New Mexico.
The achievements of technology due to this measurements are enough to be the reason for celebration. However, the researchers also expect this interesting finding to offer facts regarding how the merging of the black holes appear, in which manner these mergers have implications on the evolution of various galaxies in the many solar systems and the ways to get to know about the binary systems of the black hole.
