According to the international group of Astronomers, there is a super-massive black hole situated in the center of the Galaxy M60-UCD1. On the other hand, it is believed to be the smallest known galaxy with the super-massive black hole until now.
Anil Seth, a prominent University of Utah astronomer said that, we actually don’t know of any other method you might create such a huge black hole in a tiny object. He along with his group of astronomers used Hubble Space Telescope and the Gemini North 8m ocular and infrared telescope on Hawaii’s Mauna Kea to observe M60-UCD1 in order to gauge the black hole’s mass.
However, the M60-UCD1 black hole is 5-times the multitude of the one situated in the Milky Way galaxy. According to the researchers, the galaxy stuffs 140mn stars inside a width of about 300 light years which is merely 1/500th of our galaxy’s diameter.
Irrespective of the compactness of these galaxies, such galaxies yet tends to be more huge than we else expects.
A co-researcher Steffen Mieske of the European Southern Observatory said in a declaration that according to our previously published study, the additional weight of the galaxies are due to the presence of super-massive black holes, though it’s was just a theory. Currently, we studied the movement of stars inside M60-UCD1, and discovered a black hole situated at its center.
The researchers claimed that the Milky Way’s black hole has the mass equals to 4mn suns although it equals to the 0.01% of the total mass of Milky Way. In contrast, the super-massive black hole situated at the midst of Milky Way galaxy is around 15% of the small galaxy total mass. It seems quite astonishing that the Milky Way galaxy seems to be 500times bigger and 1000times heavier than dwarf galaxy, Seth stated.
The verdict further suggested that galaxies might in fact be exposed leftovers of bigger galaxies which were frayed separately during crashes with other galaxies as compared to the other tiny isles of stars born in seclusion.
