Summary: TEHRAN (FNA)- An extraordinary outburst produced by a black hole in a nearby galaxy has provided direct evidence for a population of old, volatile stellar black holes.
The Durham-led findings link the ULX spotted in Andromeda to a normal stellar black hole formed after a massive star exploded as a supernova.
Now, however, a team has found a stellar black hole with 15.
The likely existence of huge stellar black holes, along with observations of massive stars, suggests that stellar winds drive off only one-third to one-tenth as much mass as researchers had previously supposed, says Nathan Smith of the University of California, Berkeley.
You have stellar black holes, objects that are formed when massive stars, say a hundred times more massive than the sun, come to the end of their lives.
This means that the ULX in Andromeda likely contains a normal, stellar black hole swallowing material at very high rates," Pietsch noted.
We now know that Cygnus X-1 is one of the most massive stellar black holes in the Milky Way," said Jerry Orosz, of San Diego State University.
