6 Galaxies are stuck in 'Spider's web' could explain how supermassive blackhole are formed

6 Galaxies are stuck in 'Spider's web' could explain how supermassive blackhole are formed

6 galaxies are trapped into the supermassive black hole

 POINTS

1 : The newly discovered supermassive black hole has a mass of about one billion suns.

2: Together, the trapped galaxies are 300 times the size of our Milky way galaxy.

3 : The huge hole creates large area of invisible matter, which are believed to have attracted massive amounts of gas in the  early universe.

These 6 galaxies are trapped into the supermassive black hole

The powerful cosmic monster cannot escape anything from a black hole - not even light - due to its strong gravitational pull that attracts almost everything around the region. But for the first time, astronomers have observed six galaxies stuck ( trapped ) around a supermassive black hole, which appears as a spider web like structure.

According to the latest study, this is the first time galaxies have been found so close to each other around supermassive black holes. This type of black hole is considered the largest in terms of mass, and can be million of times heavier than the Sun. In fact, the newly discovered supermassive black holes have a mass of about one billion suns. 

The study reveals that all six galaxies were trapped due to a cosmic web like structure projected through the gas, which in turn, feeds the black hole as well and makes it more massive. Together, trapped galaxies span 300 times the size of our Milky way galaxy.

This entanglement of galaxies is located about 0.9 billion light years away from the Earth , and its discovery was made possible with the help of the European southern Observatories very large Telescope ( VLT ) in Chile.

HOW DID A WEB LIKE STRUCTURE SURROUND A BLACK HOLE?

This black hole is said to be one of the first to from during the early years of the first Stars. It came into existence when the universe was only 0.9 billion years old, and in this short time, It gained a mass of one billion suns. Exactly how it expanded to become supermassive was surprising for the researchers to find out.

One possible reason envisaged by the study's authors revolves around the huge dark matter in the universe - the mysterious dark matter.

The huge halos creates large areas of invisible matter, which are believed to have attracted massive amounts of gas in the early universe. Therefore, these - gas and the dark matter - can very well form web like structures, where both galaxies and black holes can develop.

Macro Mignoli, an astronomer at the National institute for Astrophysics ( IAAF ), said, '' galaxies are stacked and where the filaments cross, and gases can flow into both galaxies and central supermassive black holes.'' ) In Bologna, Italy, and lead author of the study.

I think that the discovery of the galaxies are may be just the tip of the iceberg. The galaxies around the black holes are extremely bright, and therefore, more such clusters may very well occur, and scientists also believe.

Through these findings and further research on the subject, mankind can improve its understanding of esoteric black holes, which can store tons of matter and swell to larger sizes. In addition, they can also shed light on the black hole found in the center of our Milky way galaxy.
