In an exciting discovery, scientists have reclassified galaxy PBC J2333.9-2343 after discovering a Gigantic Black Hole that is currently facing our solar system. According to a report by the Royal Astronomical Society, the galaxy was initially classified as a radio galaxy, but researchers realized that it had rotated 90 degrees and is now pointing its center towards Earth.
What do the Scientists say?
The galaxy, which is located approximately 657 million light-years away, stretches nearly 4 million light-years across, making it nearly 40 times the size of the Milky Way. Dr. Lorena Hernández-García, who was part of the team that discovered the Gigantic Black Hole, explained that the nucleus is no longer feeding the lobes, which means that they are very old and are relics of past activity, while structures located closer to the nucleus represent younger and active jets.
The team of scientists is currently unsure about what caused the shift in direction, although some suggest that it may have collided with another galaxy. Furthermore, it is unclear how the direction of the black hole will affect our galaxy.
Risk-posing asteroids discovered
In related news, researchers have discovered three near-Earth asteroids (NEA) that could pose a significant risk to Earth. The discovery was made during a twilight survey that is scouring the area within the orbits of Earth and Venus for asteroids. Two of the NEAs are about 1 kilometer across, a size that scientists refer to as “planet killers.”
The discovery of the Gigantic Black Hole in PBC J2333.9-2343 and the three NEAs serves as a reminder of the many threats that Earth faces from space. As scientists continue to study these phenomena and search for ways to mitigate their impact, it is essential that we remain vigilant and prepared to protect our planet.
