Black Holes, which defy physics and are really powerful that light cannot escape their horizon, have greater command over the working of the universe than scientists had previously assumed.
The fate of the stars in their galaxy is supposedly controlled by supermassive black holes, which are said to be located at the galactic centre.
Millions, if not billions, of times as large as the Sun are supermassive black holes.
According to the research presented in the journal Nature Astronomy “a fresh perspective on possible connections between galactic outflow and conditions for star formation.
Additionally, it highlights the part that cosmic rays play in promoting these gradients.”
When a star dies, its strong gravitational field causes matter to be forced into a small space beneath it, trapping the light from the deceased star.
This process creates a black hole. The mass is compressed into a very small space, which is why gravity is so strong.
People cannot see black holes because no light can escape from them. They’re invisible.
The interaction between these plasma jets and the galaxy’s cold, heavy molecular gas clouds results in system instability and star formation because of gas condensation.
In addition to emissions of ionised sulphur and nitrogen from VLT, the researchers also looked at emissions of carbon monoxide (CO) and formyl cation (HCO+) from ALMA.
Dr. Thomas Bisbas, a co-author & DFG Fellow at the University of Cologne, said in a release, “We’ve performed numerous astrochemical simulations to cover a lot of possibilities that may occur in IC 5063.
Now, the team is looking to secure time with the James Webb Telescope to re-observe the galaxy & black hole in order to do additional research on the pressure in the outer cloud layer.
