According to scientists, 3.5 billion years ago, a huge mass black hole in the Milky Way galaxy exploded and disappeared. This severe extinction is said to be felt even at 200,000 light-years away.
Among the numerous celestial bodies in space, black holes are one of the most interesting. According to researchers, a super-mass black hole in our Milky Way, our galaxy, vanished 3.5 million years ago. The severity of extinction was affected by celestial objects within 200,000 light-years.
The black hole, which disappeared with the flare coming into the shape of a cone, scattered in space.
Professor Joss Bland-Hawthorn, the director of the research, said the glare resembles a lighthouse light. Think of an eternal darkness, and then suddenly someone lights the lighthouse for a while, ”said the team’s professor, working at the Australian ARC All-Inclusive Center for Precision (ASTRO 3D). The team described the glare as ‘a huge, expanding energy beam’.
The state of the celestial body was called “sleeping dragon” because of its sudden occurrence.
Astronomers have previously made the theory that this may have happened. On a galactic scale, the event took place at a relatively new period. So much so that at the time, there are claims that people, at least their ancestors, were walking around the world. Researcher Lisa Kewley – said the incident occurred several million years ago, while the explosion came from the galactic center and collided with surrounding materials.
The so-called Seyfert flare created two huge ionization cones and temporarily divided the galaxy into two.
According to the researchers, it is impossible for anything other than the black hole itself to cause such an explosion. The mass of Sagittarius A, located in the center of our galaxy, is estimated to be 4.2 million times higher than the mass of the Sun.
According to researchers investigating data from the Hubble Space Telescope, these flares may have lasted 300,000 years. Another researcher, Dr. Magda Guglielmo, this time is very short on the galactic scale, said the galaxy was seriously affected as a result of the event, he said.
