The Largest Black Holes in the Universe


Is TON-618 the Largest Black Hole in the Universe? [OOTW]

TON-618 has become a hot topic in the study of black holes in recent years as it sits as the most massive known in the universe. This hyper-luminous quasar shines with the brightness of over 140 trillion of our Sun, and its light and radio emissions have reached us from over 10 billion light years away. Today, we will be taking a look at this beast's profile and analysing the facts, theories and competition, as well as the doubts over the understanding of this abnormal quasar.

The Most Extreme Black Holes In The Universe

The Most Dangerous Supermassive Giant Black Hole in the Universe Documentary

BLACK HOLES ARE points in space that are so dense they create deep gravity sinks. Beyond a certain region, not even light can escape the powerful tug of a black hole's gravity. And anything that ventures too close—be it star, planet, or spacecraft—will be stretched and compressed like putty in a theoretical process aptly known as spaghettification.

There are four types of black holes: stellar, intermediate, supermassive, and miniature. The most commonly known way a black hole forms is by stellar death. As stars reach the ends of their lives, most will inflate, lose mass, and then cool to form white dwarfs. But the largest of these fiery bodies, those at least 10 to 20 times as massive as our own sun, are destined to become either super-dense neutron stars or so-called stellar-mass black holes.

This is The Largest Black Hole in The Universe! *TON 618*

Few hundred million years after the big bang, TON 618 was formed. TON 618 is a ultramassive Black Hole located 10 billion light years away. It has a superhot disk of matter swirling around it.

TON 618 is so big that it's heavier than 66 billion suns. It's so bright that it's brighter than 140 trillion suns.

NASA Just Found Biggest Black Hole in Universe!

700 million light years away there is a galaxy called Holmberg 15A. It is a supergiant elliptical galaxy with mass 70 trillion times of our sun. At the core of this galaxy NASA has discovered a supermassive black hole.

According to NASA scientists it is one of the biggest black holes with mass 80 duodecillion kilograms. Thats 40 Billion times heavy than the sun and 10,000 times of Sagittarius A*.

Biggest Black Holes and Cosmic Monsters - Space Documentary 2015

Biggest Black Holes and Cosmic Monsters - Space Documentary 2015
Astronomers have identified a mammoth black hole weighing as much as 12 billion suns.

It's not the biggest black hole ever found, but it's astonishingly young. The giant appears to have swelled to its enormous size only 875 million years after the big bang, when the universe was just 6 percent of its current age. That's a surprise, astronomers report Wednesday in the journal Nature, because giant black holes are thought to grow relatively slowly by vacuuming up gas and even stars that venture too close.

How do you build such a big black hole in such a short time? asks Xue-Bing Wu of China's Peking University, lead author of the study.

Hello world! Sorry about the long time without any uploads,
but I had to spend some time dealing with life ;)
But good news, I am back with a space themed video similar to my first upload,
which became quite popular.
I hope I was able to convey my fascination.

The Largest And Most Powerful Black Hole In The Milky Way Galaxy - Space Discovery Documentary

A supermassive black hole (SMBH or sometimes SBH) is the largest type of black hole, containing a mass of the order of hundreds of thousands to billions of times the mass of the Sun (M☉). Black holes are a class of astronomical object that have undergone gravitational collapse, leaving behind spheroidal regions of space from which nothing can escape, not even light. Observational evidence indicates that nearly all large galaxies contain a supermassive black hole, located at the galaxy's center. In the case of the Milky Way, the supermassive black hole corresponds to the location of Sagittarius A* at the Galactic Core. Accretion of interstellar gas onto supermassive black holes is the process responsible for powering quasars and other types of active galactic nuclei.

Deep Space | The Largest Black Holes in the Universe

A black hole is a region of spacetime exhibiting such strong gravitational effects that nothing—not even particles and electromagnetic radiation such as light—can escape from inside it. The theory of general relativity predicts that a sufficiently compact mass can deform spacetime to form a black hole. The boundary of the region from which no escape is possible is called the event horizon. Although the event horizon has an enormous effect on the fate and circumstances of an object crossing it, no locally detectable features appear to be observed. In many ways a black hole acts like an ideal black body, as it reflects no light. Moreover, quantum field theory in curved spacetime predicts that event horizons emit Hawking radiation, with the same spectrum as a black body of a temperature inversely proportional to its mass. This temperature is on the order of billionths of a kelvin for black holes of stellar mass, making it essentially impossible to observe.
