Black Hole Mystery Solved

Black hole is a problem, and the mystery of the scientific community for decades. Many researchers are working day and night on the mysteries of black holes to explore. In this series, a new invention by astrophysicist of Yale University shows that there is an upper limit to black hole mass. This research was also published in the journal Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society.

What are black holes?

As most of you know that the black hole is a region of space where gravity is so strong that nothing, not even electromagnetic radiation to escape. Black holes hard these can not be seen (because it absorbs light rays), but can be lived by its ultra-strong gravity. They are called the black hole .. They continue to grow in size by absorbing all matters within its gravitational field.

How can you develop?

So far, I was not sure what the maximum size of a black hole that is. These black holes are known worldwide and the largest and most massive is the center of many galaxies. This "great" black hole has a mass of about one billion times the sun

CONCEPT upper weight limit

According to new research by Priyamvada Natarajan, an associate professor of astronomy and physics at Yale University and researcher at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, there is no evidence that even the largest of these black holes can not continue to grow indefinitely . On the contrary, they seem to stop growing - if they collect about 10 billion solar masses

The theory behind this research

Plain black hole continue to accumulate mass by absorbing substance of the stars, gas and dust around. However, according to new research by Priyamvada Natarajan, it is possible that a certain limit, regardless of where black holes. The reason is that "these black holes eventually reach the point where they radiate so much energy to their surroundings that they end up interfering with a large amount of gas that feeds them, close to the star formation may stop eating."

Priyamvada Natarajan experiences

Natarajan used existing optical data and X-ray of the ultra-massive black hole to show that these observations are consistent with essentially the black hole must stop at some point in their development. This is helped by the fact that these black holes can grow indefinitely in the body and prove an upper limit of the black hole mass.
