Researchers Reveal the Mystery Behind the Formation of Black Holes


Scientists are looking at the evolution of the universe’s first supermassive black holes from a different perspective. The distant massive black holes formed in the early universe are exposing themselves after billions of years of formation. Researchers took another step to understand how massive black holes first came into existence. The light released from around the first massive black hole in the universe is so strong that it can reach telescopes. The light traveled the distance of more than 13 billion light years. Researchers don’t know about the formation of those monster black holes.

New research suggests that massive black holes form in dense regions with no stars. They are overgrowing and turned the theory upside down that massive black hole form in areas with powerful radiations. Researchers used data from a 70-terabyte Renaissance Simulation suite on the Blue Waters supercomputer to discover the formation of black holes in other regions. The journal Nature published the study on 23rd January. The research owns finance from the European Union, the National Science Foundation and NASA. Additionally, the study reveals that massive black holes can be present anywhere in the universe. Prof. John Wise, study’s co-author, said the formation of a gigantic black hole depends on the gas clouds that result in the creation of galaxy. Prof. Wise is an associate professor at the Georgia Institute of Technology’s School of Physics.

Wise said the team uncovered an entirely new mechanism that sheds light on the formation of massive black holes in particular dark-mater halos. Thus it is essential to understand the rapid growth rate of halos that just considering the radiation. Prof. Wise says physics is not necessary to know about the dark hole. Researchers believe the formation of the massive black hole needs presence in different region with a strong convergence of matter. In the upcoming days, the simulations could also reveal the lifespan of massive black holes, concentrating on the growth and evolution of black holes.
