KELT 9B - Hottest Gas Giant

Hottest Gas Giant Planet – KELT-9B

NASA has discovered beyond our solar system there are plenty of other solar systems having variety of planets revolving around stars. Scientists have discovered a planet which they call, KELT-9b. This planet is hotter than most known planets in our galaxy. The day time temperature of this planet is more than 7,800 degrees Fahrenheit, yet the star that this planet revolves around is even hotter and the star vaporize the planet during revolution.

Behemoth Black Hole

Black Hole Behemoth

In 2016, a supermassive black hole is found which was observed having a weight of 17 billion suns. This supersized black hole is found at the center of an elliptical galaxy named, NGC 1600. This galaxy is located in cosmic backwater which is a small cluster of approximately 20 galaxies. There are more than 50 such small groups besides the coma cluster. Scientists at NASA believe that this discovery of such a massive black hole could mean that there might be more such or even greater black holes waiting to be discovered out there in space.

Big Bang

Big Bang Theory – The Beginning of Everything

As being humans, we are always curious about our existence and how we originated. Medical science has answered the questions of the origin of human beings, yet now the question remains to how did our solar system came into existence, and how did this galaxy and later the entire universe’s existence becomes a question mark for anxious humans. Scientists have been devising theories to answer such questions. One of the most popular and widely acceptable phenomenon is that of a Big Bang.

First Ever Image of a Black Hole Expected this Year

Black holes are known for the most dense and darkest object in the universe. Our galaxy the milky way is considered hosting a black hole called Sagittarius A* (A star) at the center. To the date, no one saw a black hole ever. Black holes are only detected if surrounding material is being absorbed by some invisible object. This process emits x-rays which helps scientist to predict there could be a black hole. Continue reading “First Ever Image of a Black Hole Expected this Year”
