A new discovery from the beginning of this year! Astronomers have just discovered for the first time a single, isolated black hole that travels through the Universe at an extremely high speed: 160,000 km / h. 

Large stars, maybe one in a thousand, can turn into a black hole at the end of his life. But even if only approx. 0.1% of stars can turn into black holes, astronomers have never seen such an isolated black hole. 

Usually, black holes that arise from a supernova form in a binary solar system, along with a neutron star. At this new discovery, astronomers did not observe any binary system, making this discovery a first. It was declared the first by astronomers "the first indisputable proof of the formation of such a celestial body in the absence of a binary solar system." 

These discoveries were made using data from the Hubble Telescope, used by astrophysicists at the Baltimore Institute of Science. The first sign that led to these discoveries was that astrophysicists were able to observe phenomena of spatial distortion produced at a distance of about 5,150 light-years. Such phenomena can be explained in only one way: the existence of a solitary black hole in that place. 

One theory that the black hole may not belong to any binary system is that it may have been thrown out of the binary system by the supernova that gave birth to it. 

The discovery was also published in the Astrophysical Journal. 

We are waiting for new data from this discovery!
