A Star Fell Into A Black Hole, Revealing Its Super-Fast Spin

That even created a burst of X-ray activity at the center of the galaxy and since the discovery, multiple observatories have had telescopes trained on the event to learn more about how precisely black holes consume stars. Most large galaxies have giant, sucking black holes at their centers. It's immensely hard to measure; we only have spin measurements for about 30 supermassive black holes, determined based on their X-ray spectra. Consulte Mais Informação
