When were black holes found?
Black holes were discovered in 1972 by Tom Bolton.
When Tom Bolton discovered this, the black hole was 8,200 light years away from the Earth (1 light year is 6 trillion miles).
Black holes are the greatest mystery.It has the strongest gravitational pull in the universe.Nothing can escape a black hole not even light!Nobody knows what is inside a black hole since light cannot escape it. There are 2 types of black holes.Stellar and super massive black holes.Super massive black holes are found in the middle of every galaxy including our own milky way galaxy.Super massive black holes are 1000x bigger then stellar black holes.Stellar black holes…
Most black holes are stellar mass black holes with masses comparable to those of large stars as they form from the collapse of massive stars. Scientists know of the existence of supermassive black holes that are millions to billions of times the mass of our sun and can be found in the centers of most galaxies. Scientists still do not know how these black holes become so massive.
Here are some things that are currently unknown. * How do supermassive black holes form? * Are there intermediate-mass black holes? It seems there are, but this isn't very certain yet. * Are there primordial (miniature-size) black holes? These may have formed during the Big Bang, but none have been found yet.
i was doing this project for school. here was the info i found. black holes are black because no light can escape. because of that they are invisible. to see a black hole scientists use space telescopes and special tools to look at the stars. stars orbiting black holes act differently than other stars.
We often find supermassive black holes in the center of galaxies. Stellar black holes are found in different places in space. We have a supermassive black hole in the middle of our own Milky Way galaxy. Scientists say that it is a very small black hole compared to the ones in some other galaxies. Very amazing.
Supermassive black holes found at the centers of galaxies are related to the properties of those galaxies in the following way?
Yes. Intermediate-mass black hole is a medium size black hole. Scientists have found stellar black holes and supermassive black holes but there is no prove that Intermediate-mass black type of black holes exist. My opinion is that they do exist because when a black hole is becoming a black hole supermassive black hole it will need to go though this stage of intermediate-mass black hole.
There is not "a" black hole, but many of them. The nearest known black hole is at a distance of several thousand light-years, but it is likely that there are others closer by: only black holes that are very near of a partner (in a binary system) are easily found. There is not "a" black hole, but many of them. The nearest known black hole is at a distance of several thousand light-years, but it…
If space men are brave enough they can go far far far away into space and that is probably find one. There are black holes all over the galaxy. They result from the collapse of larger stars. The closest known black hole is a few thousand light-years away, but there may well be black holes nearer to us. There are black holes all over the galaxy. They result from the collapse of larger stars. The…
An intermediate-mass black hole is one with a mass significantly greater than the typical stellar-mass black holes, but less than the supermassive black holes such as are found at galactic centers. Their identification remains difficult, and their origins remain in the realm of speculation, although a reasonable theory hints at the likelihood of their formation from accretion of dense stellar clusters... and one possibly is that they are primordial black holes left over from the…
Probably not. The existence of black holes can be considered to be confirmed; the existence of wormholes is highly speculative, that is, they probably don't exist at all. According to String Theory, worm hole does exist. However black holes are not warm holes. Even if you did found a wormhole, it probably going to be only about 1 atom small.
It's quite probable that all black holes spin. The probability of a huge amount of matter collecting with no net angular momentum is vanishingly small. The first solution of general relativity's equations for a black hole was found by simplifying the problem to assume that there was no rotation. Thus, it is possible to find, in the literature, papers referring to non-rotating black holes. Later, a solution was found that allowed for rotation, and this…
Unknown - As they can't easily be detected, and most of them are expected to have been formed upon the onset of the Big Bang. Astronomers estimate that in our region of the Universe, there are some 100 billion supermassive black holes. But this does not account for the lesser size black holes, of which there is estimate to be a much larger number.
Black holes can't be seen but you can see how something affects the area around the black holes, so that's really how they found a black hole. Karl Schwarzchild is the man most often attributed with having discovered the black hole with a telescope. how is that possible if you can't see a Black hole, how can you see it with a telescope?
