Extremely rare astronomical event: a sudden explosion in a star the size of the Sun and then …

London: Astronomers have made a very rare The accident is captured. With the help of binoculars, they managed to capture the moment when the Massive Black Hole was engulfing a sun-shaped star. This process of swallowing stars by a black hole is known as “Spaghettification”.

Suddenly exploded

Astronomers, using the telescopes of the European Southern Observatory – ESO and other space stations around the world, observed that a star the size of the Sun suddenly exploded and dissolved into a black hole. Scientists say this will help to know the relationship between black holes and stars.

Unusual Tidal

Disruption Event Such events occurring in space are called tidal disturbances. This unusual “Tidal disturbance event” showed itself as a bright glow of energy, which is only 21. Itself with a distance of 5 crore light years It is the closest to Professor Matt Nicholl of the Royal Astronomical Society of Britain explained that the phenomenon of swallowing stars around a black hole looks like science fiction, but actually happens in the “Tidal Disruption Event”. However, events in which a star the size of the Sun merges into a black hole under spaghettification are rare and not easy to study.

2019 Attention was active since the accident

Research team focused the European Southern Observatory’s Very Large Telescope (VLT) and New Technology Telescope (NTT) on the direction in which 2019 I saw light near a supermassive black hole . So that you can know in detail what happens when a black hole swallows the stars.

Bright light appears

Study author Thomas Weavers said that when an unfortunate star approaches a supermassive black hole in the center of the galaxy, the black hole’s excessive gravitational pull splits the star into small pieces of matter. During this spaghetti-making process, some thin straws of stellar material fall into the black hole, giving a brilliant light. However, it is not easy for scientists to capture this light due to dust and debris, etc. due to the explosion, but this time they succeeded.

According to researcher Nicole of the University of Edinburgh, the mass of the star was the same as the Sun and more than half of it was absorbed in a black hole, which is several hundred thousand times larger than that. He said this study will help understand the huge black hole.
