NASA reveals an amazing image of the Milky Way


Russia Today: NASA X-rays have shown the middle of our galaxy in stunning detail.

The image from the Space Agency shows a large number of amazing colors resulting from gases being heated up to a million degrees Celsius and a super-black hole, known as the A-Archer *, whose mass is about four million times the mass of the sun.

Neutron stars and white dwarf stars also tear materials down at the bright center of the Milky Way.

“The central region of our galaxy, the Milky Way, contains an odd set of things, including a supermassive black hole weighing about 4 million times the mass of the sun (called the A-ramer *), and gas clouds at heat,” NASA said in a commentary on the image. Reaching millions of degrees, neutron stars and white dwarf stars mix materials from accompanying stars and beautiful holes for radio emissions. ”

The radius of the ramie A * is about 22 million km, and its mass is more than four million times the mass of the sun. In other words, it is very dense.

Because it is so heavy, it has the ability to stretch the entire time to a point where one minute at its edge will see 700 years pass by on Earth.

Emma Osborne, an astrophysicist at the University of Southampton, told the audience at New Scientist Live: “Any mass will extend to spacetime. The more heavier a body is, or the more massive it becomes, the more it expands in spacetime.”

She added: “If you were to stand outside the event horizon of the A * shooter, and stand there for a minute, then 700 Earth years will pass because time passes much slower in the gravitational field there than it is on Earth.”

There are several ways in which a black hole can be formed. Scientists believe that the most common example is when a star collapses in what is known as the supernova.

Another way is when a large amount of matter, which can be in the form of a gas cloud or star, collapses on itself by pulling its own gravity.

Finally, the collision of two neutron stars can cause a black hole.

The essence of the three methods is that a massive amount of mass in one spot can cause a black hole.
