Scientists always impress us with their latest discoveries, and when it comes to space, there are always new things to learn. Let's see what we learned this week.
The galaxies are dying
Astronomers witnessed the death of a small Mageljan cloud, a dwarf galaxy. It seems that the galaxy has no power to form begins more. "Galaxies that stop making stars are gradually being forgotten. It's kind of a death spate for the galaxy if it loses all its gases," said Naomi McClure-Griffiths of the Australian National Astronomical and Astrophysics Research Institute. It is believed that the Milky Way will eat this galaxy.
The galaxies have merged
Scientists have recently witnessed something unique. They finally have the proof that the black holes are merging. Astronomers watched different galaxies in the form of a huge black hole. You can see images taken with the optical system W.M. Keck Observatory.
"Seeing the pairs of joining the core of galaxies associated with these huge black holes so close was pretty unbelievable," said Michael Koss, a researcher at Eureka Scientific. "In our research, we see two cores of galaxy exactly when the images are taken, and you can not argue with it, which is a very clear result that does not rely on the interpretation."
The original black hole
The black holes discovered in the center of the galaxy Abell 2597 fascinates us with its fountain like a movement. The cold molecular gas falls into the black hole and then the nozzles spill back.
"The evolution of the galaxy can be quite chaotic, and large galaxies like these tend to live strongly and die. For the first time, we could observe the entire cycle of the superhuman black hole funnel that works to regulate this process, extending the life of the galaxy," said Timothy Davis. Physics and Astronomy at the University of Cardiff.
