The Hubble Space Telescope Just Captured A Black Hole That Gives Birth To Stars Instead Of Absorbing Them

Astronomers in charge of the Hubble Space Telescope have discovered a black hole in the heart of a dwarf galaxy that, rather than absorbing stars, generates them. This revelation challenges the commonly held belief that black holes are matter destroyers.

The process by which these stars form is peculiar and differs from what is found in larger galaxies. Gas may be observed circling about the black hole known as Henize 2-10 before merging with a dense core of gas within the galaxy, according to the astronomers.

“Hubble’s spectroscopy shows that the outflow was moving at a million miles per hour, hitting the dense gas like a garden hose hitting a mound of dirt. Clusters of newborn stars dot the path of the outflow propagation,” explains NASA .
