Q3. Scientists have recently discovered what may be the smallest-known black hole in the Milky Way galaxy. What is it called?
Answer 3: The Unicorn
Scientists have discovered what may be the tiniest known black hole in the Milky Way galaxy and the nearest to our solar system, dubbed “the Unicorn.”
The black hole, which is nearly three times the mass of our sun, is pushing the boundaries of scale for these extremely dense objects with gravitational pulls so powerful that not even light can escape, according to the researchers. In the so-called binary star system V723 Mon, a bright star known as a red giant orbits the black hole.
The black hole is around 1,500 light years away from Earth (9.5 trillion miles is the distance light travels in a year).
Even though it is the nearest to us, it is still a long way away. By comparison, Proxima Centauri, the closest star to our solar system, is 4 light years away.
“We nicknamed this black hole ‘the Unicorn’ partly because V723 Mon is in the Monoceros constellation — which translates to unicorn — and partly because it is a very unique system” in terms of the black hole’s mass and proximity to Earth, according to Ohio State University astronomy doctoral student Tharindu Jayasinghe, lead author of the study published this week in the journal Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society.TheHindu
