According to the science journal Scientific Science, astronomers from the European Southern Observatory (ESO) have been observing the star named s2, orbiting the massive black hole 27 years ago, and taking measurements of the star’s position and speed as it orbits the center of the galaxy, approximately 26,000 years ago. Light from the ground.
After seeing the star complete nearly two complete orbits (each complete orbit takes about 16 years), the researchers concluded that the star does not have a fixed oval orbit as predicted by Isaac Newton’s theory of gravity but rather does cycles around the black hole in a pattern resembling an electronically drawn rose.
This type of orbit, where the nearest point of a star moves around a black hole with each orbit, is known as Schwarzschild, and researchers wrote in their new study, published today, that Einstein predicted this type of motion, over 100 years ago to describe the effects of a small infinite body that revolves around Unusually huge body.
“This famous influence – first seen in Mercury’s orbit around the sun – was the first evidence in favor of general relativity, and a hundred years later, we now discovered the same effect in the study,” said co-author, Reinhard Gensel, director of the Max Planck Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics in Germany. The movement of a star revolves around the center of the Milky Way. ”
