Evidence Shows Massive Black Holes Found In Nearby Galaxies Of The Milky Way

Even though black holes in the galaxy may seem so close, they are actually a million light years away from Earth. In line with this, these black holes don't necessarily put the Earth in any danger or be threatened with any harm.

Black Holes Between Two Nearby Galaxies Discovered By Astronomers

It has recently been reported that astronomers have discovered a number of evidences that could prove the existence of a black hole at the center of two neighbouring galactic universes. Both galaxies have been considered active, not necessarily meaning there is an existence of life. However, it means both galaxies release intense levels of radiation. The two nearby galaxies are named the NGC 1448 and IC 3639 and both are 38 million and 170 million light years away, respectively.

In science, black holes are defined as places in the galaxies that the gravity is so powerful, it traps the light and even alters time and space. This has been recognized as one of the most dangerous things to ever come close to the planets, altering the "timeline" or otherwise zone that the people are currently living in now. These black holes can be detected from the emissions of radiations by any object that is falling into them: rocks, and the like. These were spotted by the NASA NUSTAR, or NASA's Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array orbiting observatory.

Are The Black Holes Getting Alarmingly Close To Earth?

These black holes are reportedly getting too close to Milky Way, although still a million light years away, this could still be alarming according to scientists. These discoveries have led to the question of the existence of more of these black holes, and just how close they are to the galaxy that earth is currently in now. They remain hidden behind clouds of gas and dust, making it hard to locate them sometimes. They are even using the metaphor that these black holes are like any kids' thoughts of monsters living under their beds.
