Clearest photo ever of our Galaxy’s Black Hole

There is a black hole in the middle of our galaxy. Astronomers have taken the clearest picture ever of the center of the Milky Way, in which the black hole is also visible. With the help of this picture, scientists will be able to find out the size of the black hole. The name of this black hole is Sagittarius A*. (Photo: ESO)

Sagittarius A* is located right in the middle of our galaxy. The Very Large Telescope Interferometer (VLTI) of the European Southern Observatory (ESO) in Chile was taking pictures of the center of the Milky Way. Then suddenly he saw the mysterious black hole Sagittarius A* (Sagittarius A*) in the middle. What was visible for a few seconds, then disappeared. (Photo: ESO)

The Very Large Telescope Interferometer is one of the world’s finest optical space observatories. It has four telescopes. The diameter of each one is 27 feet. There are also four auxiliary telescopes whose diameter is 6 feet. These telescopes are so powerful that they can easily see objects 400 million times fainter than the objects visible to our eyes in space. (Photo: ESO)

Interferometry is such a technique, with the help of which the data of the light received on four telescopes can be combined to make a complete picture or video. The picture of the Sagittarius A* blackhole present in the galaxy is the clearest image ever. This black hole had not been photographed before, nor the center of the Milky Way. (Photo: ESO)

Julia Stadler, a postdoctoral researcher at the Germany-based Max Planck Institute for Astrophysics, said that VLTI has given us a wonderful picture. These are the best pictures ever taken in the depths of space. We are surprised by the detailing of these pictures. Here we have also got a picture of stars revolving around the black hole. Which are astonishing. Along with this, the process of coming and disappearing of black holes is also surprising. (Photo: ESO)

The power of the telescope can be gauged from the fact that the Sagittarius A * black hole present in the middle of the galaxy does not emit any kind of light. It is difficult to see it directly. Scientists were able to recognize this black hole and take a picture of it due to the light and movement of the stars revolving around it. (Photo: ESO)

Reinhard Genzel, director of the Max Planck Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics and who won the Nobel in Physics in the year 2020, said that we have seen stars revolving around Sagittarius A *. Through this we can estimate the gravitational force of the black hole. This black hole in space is closest to our earth. From these pictures we will also be able to study this general relativity. Also, you will be able to know about the characteristics of black holes. Reinhardt received the Nobel Prize for his decades-long research on Sagittarius A*. (Symbol Photo: Getty)

Reinhardt said that we did this study between March and July this year. In which it was found that the Sagittarius A* black hole is so big that it can contain 43 lakh suns. It is about 27 thousand light years away from Earth. Both these figures are considered to be the most accurate in comparison to the calculations done so far. The star that is closest to this black hole is named S29. It is 1300 million kilometers away from the black hole. (Symbol Photo: Getty)

The distance of the S29 star from the black hole Sagittarius A * is more than 90 times the distance of the Sun from our Earth. When this star passes near the black hole, then its speed is astonishing. It travels at a speed of 8740 kilometers per second. That is, the speed of 3.14 crore kilometers per hour. A new star has also been detected during the study of this black hole. The name of this new star is S300. (Symbol Photo: Getty)

This study is part of the international project Gravity. Under this project, pictures of the galaxy are being collected. The center and other areas are being investigated. Scientists hope that in the future they will be able to discover even more faint stars than S29 and S300, which are revolving around this black hole. This study has recently been published in the journal Astronomy and Astrophysics . (Symbol Photo: Getty)
