Spider's Web Traps Six Galaxies in a Supermassive Blackhole in The Universe |

New observations reveal, Six galaxies orbit were trapped around a supermassive black hole during the early history of the universe, According to the ESO statement, new data from Chile and other observatories of the European Southern Observatory's Very Large Telescope (VLT) gives astronomers a sense of black hole evolution, when the universe was less than a billion years old. One of the mysteries of supermassive black holes is how they became so large, some of them have billions of times the mass of the Sun.  Supermassive black holes are also relatively common, They hit the galaxies, including our own Milky Way, if not everyone's heart.  The new comments encourage the notion that, according to the ESO, "such" black holes develop in a greater environment "within a larger, web-like structure." Marco Magnoli, lead author of the astronomy at the National Institute for Astrophysics in Bologna, Italy, said in a statement that the study was initially inspired by a desire to understand the most challenging celestial bodies - the "first supermassive block of the universe."  Yes, and to this day we have no good explanation for their existence. Magnoli said half a dozen galaxies had been found on a "spider web" of gas 300 times the size of the Milky Way away from the black hole.  A rich gas environment could explain why these black holes could grow so fast shortly after the Big Bang, Spider-web structures may have grown out of a collection of dark matter, a poorly understood substance that makes up most of the matter in our universe, but can only be detected through its gravitational effects.  In new research, galaxies were a little easier to raise: astronomers needed several hours of observation from several large optical telescopes, including VLTs, to study them.

"Our finding lends support to the idea that the most distant and massive black holes form and grow within massive dark-matter halos in large-scale structures, and that the absence of earlier detections of such structures was likely due to observational limitations," Colin Norman, a co-author on the new research and an astrophysicist at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, said in the same statement. Scientists will be able to better study such structures when ESO's extremely large telescope comes online, as the device is designed to detect peer and giant galaxies in the early universe.  The telescope's "first light," when it will collect test images from the sky.
