Photos Biggest Black Hole in Universe Discovered

Black hole or the biggest black hole in the universe have been found with a heavy 6.8 billion times the mass of the Sun.  So big, the hole is said to be able to swallow the Earth and its entire contents of the solar system.

With the size of the horizon, it is estimated the entire contents of the solar system can not run away from the edge of this, including even light.  For comparison, the magnitude can reach four times the orbit of the planet Neptune.


The black hole is located in M87.  So far, he is the biggest galaxy closest to the Milky Way.  The distance is estimated about 50 million light years from Earth and is still not known when the 'monster' was born.

Given the size is very huge, some scientists think the hole was created by hundreds of black holes joined together in the past.

"He could swallow our solar system," said Karl Gebhardt, a scientist from the University of Texas, Austin-USA, as quoted from All Voices, Sunday, January 16, 2011.

A special telescope in Hawaii used by scientists to observe an object which is estimated to have weighed more than double the previous.  With these telescopes, Gebhardt and his team able to observe space objects up to a distance of 500 km.

"And, this giant black holes are black holes and Accurate termasif we've ever found," said astronomer George Djorgovski of the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena.
