China scientists find LB-1 black hole, larger than thought could exist

So scientists are scratching their heads attempting to make sense of how the black hole - named LB-1 - got so chonky.

The statement noted that scientists had previously believed that an individual stellar black hole - formed when a star collapses - that's in our galaxy could only weigh as much as 20 times the mass of our sun.

Scientists have discovered a "monster black hole", but they said it's so big that it shouldn't actually exist. He further states that typical stars in the Milky Way shed most of their gas through stellar winds.

"Therefore, they should not let such remains solid", he continues.

The black hole "is twice as massive as what we thought possible", Liu said in the statement.

The stumble on suggests some doubtless explanations, including the "moving probability" that LB-1 may per chance well also very successfully consist of two sunless holes orbiting every other, though Bregman acknowledged that may per chance well successfully be uncommon. There are several types of black holes, and stellar black holes like LB-1 are on the smaller side, according to NASA. Scientists have not observed or even been able to prove this theory, but if this is the case, then LB-1 could constitute a major breakthrough in astrophysics.

A research team from the Chinese Academy of Sciences used the large area multi-object fiber spectroscopic sky Telescope (LAMOST) for signs of LB-1. A recent discovery was made regarding the actual size of black holes as scientists found that it is a lot bigger than we generally believe it is.

Recently, astronomers have been challenged by discoveries that point to the existence of black holes that are more massive than experts thought was possible. "... Now theorists will must possess the distress of explaining its formation".

"Black holes of such mass should not even exist in our Galaxy, according to most of the current models of stellar evolution", said Prof.

The findings had been printed by Chinese language researchers within the journal Nature on Wednesday. Supermassive black holes are grand bigger - they'll even be billions of times the mass of our solar. The vast number of black holes and their mechanisms on how they're formed are still being researched upon.

Astronomers estimate that the Milky Way could be filled to 100 million black holes. The ripples have been identified by the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) in the US and the Virgo gravitational wave detector in Italy. But this is the first time a black hole of this magnitude has been discovered in the Milky Way.

Earlier this year, in a separate project, scientists released the first-ever image of a black hole, revealing the distant object in stunning detail.
