26 black holes found in neighboring galaxy

26 black holes found in neighboring galaxy 1

Astronomers have indentified an unprecedented number of black holes in the Andromeda galaxy.
NASA has combined more than 150 observations from the Chandra X-Ray Observatory spread across 13 years to identify the largest number of black hole candidates within a single galaxy to date. These particular black holes are likely to have been formed by the collapse of stars up to 10 times the mass of our Sun.
“While we are excited to find so many black holes in Andromeda, we think it’s just the tip of the iceberg,” said astrophysicist Robin Barnard.

Using data from NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory, astronomers have discovered an unprecedented bonanza of black holes in the Andromeda Galaxy, one of the nearest galaxies to the Milky Way.
