According to the British news agency PA, scientists have discovered around 10,000 black holes residing in the center of our Milky Way.
According to PA, according to a latest study that has just been published, scientists have just discovered that about 10,000 black holes known as “space monsters” reside at the center of our Milky Way.
Scientists have long suspected that there may be a number of small mass black holes surrounding a supermassive black hole in the center of the Milky Way, but due to the nature of black holes, black holes are difficult to observe because light near the black hole is also unable to escape their gravity, so the theory has yet to be proven.
By locating x-rays through the movement of matter around a cluster of two separate but together black hole systems, which scientists call “double black holes,” the number of black holes in the middle of the center of the Milky Way was gradually revealed.

As a result, astronomers have observed evidence of 300 to 500 “double black holes”. As a result, they concluded, there are around 10,000 black holes in the center of the Milky Way.
“This is a finding that has confirmed the suspicions of the scientific community for a long time. Moreover, it opens up new research.” know.

The supermassive black hole at the center of the Milky Way is called Sagittarius A (Sgr A), its mass is about 4 million times that of the Sun and 26,000 light years from Earth.
These newly discovered black holes are located about 31 trillion kilometers from the supermassive black hole in the center of the Milky Way. And these black holes have a mass 10 times the mass of the Sun.
