Discovered in our galaxy a black hole that should not exist

the opening of the “impossible” of a black hole is not consistent with Einstein's General relativity

conceals many mysteries. Recently their was one more. The fact that the Chinese astronomers have discovered in our galaxy, which, according to current scientific theory, should not exist because of its incredible size. This space monster 70 times the mass of the Sun and was named LB-1. As researchers, after the discovery of the object could not believe it. The authors of the study, which was published in the journal , consulted with astronomers from around the world and check the facts for three years.

What do we know about the evolution of stars?

To answer this question, it is enough to recall that stars are composed of different elements, from light gases to heavy metals. Lighter elements become heavier as the result of thermonuclear reactions in the cores of stars, in the process releasing huge amounts of energy. However, according to the famous Einstein equation E = mc2, the mass of the star should decrease as it is converted into energy. Some particles can also escape as the solar wind, so over time, the star fades and collapses into a neutron star or a black hole. According to this theory, our Sun can't create . Moreover, we reported recently that in the future our native star will expand into a red dwarf.

According to researchers from NASA so it looks like the black hole

In 2015, after the detection of gravitational waves, scientists first suggested the existence of an overly massive black hole. Gravitational waves traveling through the Universe suggest the existence of a black hole, 60 times more massive than the Sun but a black hole GW150914, as it was called, was located in a remote part of the , stars which differ from our home star. Most scientists believed that the object of similar dimensions was formed through the merger of two black holes clash which, as we now know, generates gravitational waves. However, the opening of the LB-1 once again forced astronomers to think about. As the researchers write in their work, the incredible size of the LB-1 cannot be explained by the initial mass of the star, stellar wind or nuclear fusion reactions. The existence of this black hole disproves our perception of the evolution of stars and formation of black holes.

Denies if the opening of the LB-1 of Einstein's General relativity?

Researchers have discovered a black hole with a telescope Large Sky Area — the world's largest scanner of galaxies, located near Beijing in Hebei province in Northern China. It consists of 4000 small lenses, each of which can be focused on a single target. However, in the scientific community, the opening of the LB-1 is considered as a success. Dr. David Reitze, Executive Director of the LIGO laboratory at the California Institute, compared this discovery with the detection of gravitational waves. However, between the discovery and the opening of the LB-1 there is a significant difference — the mere existence of so massive a black hole is not consistent with General relativity (GR) Einstein. Although it is unlikely that General relativity is incorrect, the opening of the LB-1 suggests that it can be .

it looks like the collision of two black holes, which appear due to gravitational waves

The Astronomers believe that the discovery of a black hole with a mass of 70 times the mass of our Sun in the milky Way galaxy forces us to reconsider models of formation of black holes and overall understanding of the astrophysics of these cosmic monsters. By the way, recently we told you that the expansion of the Universe is not consistent with General relativity, and scientists are in search of alternative theories.
