NASA astronomers have seen a supermassive black hole, at least 380 millions of rotating hours or at the speed of light.
From this point of view, it is a black hole, a diameter of 300 times the Earth, and only turns two minutes away.
As defined in a paper published on Wednesday Science, the team took an unprecedented measurement of black hole rotation by observing some space x-ray observatories, including NASA's Chandra telescope.
Astronomers have seen more than 300,000 rotating cycles, giving the most accurate measurement of the supermassive black hole ever taken.
The black hole, which is 290 million light years away around the Earth, was first discovered by the astronomers in 2014 when the optical telescopes were clearly detected. From an in-depth analysis, astronomers discovered the result of a star through a supermassive black hole.

As the rest of the horizon of the black column event, the astronomers controlled the hole created by Chandra and two other space telescopes. (Beyond the future of the event, it is not possible to escape the gravitational force of the black hole or other energy energy.)
Black holes themselves do not emit light or other energy, the only way to measure their wheel speed is to see an orbit around other objects and to extrapolate them by observing that the acceleration of the black hole accelerates. Scientists have warned that X-rays could reach 132 seconds, which refused to heat gas in the black hole's orbit.

This is not the first scientist to use X-ray spill variations to measure the circumference of the black hole. Previously, however, these types of observations were limited to black holes less than Sun. However, although some supermassive black holes have been seen in this way, although astronomers have only been able to record only a few rotating brickworkers, they reduce the certainty that they rotate the black hole.
According to a statement published by NASA, the researchers involved in the project believe that astronomers are looking for similar events and how they better understand the stars with black holes.
