Astronomers have discovered a new supermassive black hole that looks like a huge fountain. It is located in the center of the Abell 2597 galaxy, billions of light years separating the hole from Earth.
According to Science Alert, the hole makes a closed loop, from which cold molecular gas is released and falls back. That's why scientists compared him to the fountain.
"Perhaps this is the first system in which we have found clear evidence of the inflow of cold molecular gas into the black hole, as well as the outflow or lifting of the nozzles started by a black hole," said Grant Tremblai of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics.
It has also been reported that the hole does not produce gas alone – attracts the force of gravity.
As the OBOZREVATEL writes, scientists at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics have discovered that living organisms can be centered around the entire Milky Way using various space objects, including meteorites, asteroids, and comets.
