Black holes eat two gas flows at a time: Study

A new research has suggested that the rapid growth of a supermassive black hole is due to the way it absorbs more than one flow of gas at a time. Astronomers at the universities of Leicester and Monash studied the structure of some massive black holes which are billions of times heavier than the sun.

“Almost every galaxy has an enormously massive black hole in its center,” said Andrew King of the University of Leicester. “Our own galaxy, the Milky Way, has one about four million times heavier than the sun. But some galaxies have black holes a thousand times heavier still.” “These hugely massive black holes were already full–grown when the universe was very young, less than a tenth of its present age,” he explained.

Black holes grow by absorbing gas which is usually a slow process and does not make it possible for the holes to grow into huge masses.

Scientists used computer stimulation of two flows of gas which orbit around the hole in two different courses. The flows collided and were sucked in by the black hole after a short time.

Results showed a 1,000 times faster growth after the hole absorbed the two gas flows.

“If two guys ride motorbikes on a Wall of Death and they collide, they lose the centrifugal force holding them to the walls and fall,” King noted.

“We don’t know exactly how gas flows inside galaxies in the early universe, but I think it is very promising that if the flows are chaotic it is very easy for the black hole to feed.”

The findings are set to be published in the journal, Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society.

    Actually the fact of virtual nature of strong to swallow the weak sounds to be youy Lavoisier view. In my understanding of how the Universe behave, every creation or living object came from another object or disappearing of another object which doesnt mean “No Creation”
    Creation has 2 approaches; from nothing or from something
    This means within all living creations came from something even mix with many things like humanity
    The other side as a scientist, time is the direction to reveal the creation mean
    Before dinausaurs there was no Human living. Then human evolve from partsof living nature which make cell replacement entropic till the giving up process of death

    I understand very well now why LAVOISIER said: after the creation of the UNIVERSE, nothing is created, nothing is loosing but everything is transformed…
    sometimes, i am saying that science wants to help us to understand universe but it’s make us on a big troubles especially for those who believe on science…

    As you said, ”Black holes” grow by absorbing GAS, maybe or not maybe but sure, one day, our planet will be absorbed… and according that, i am saying it’s so useful sometimes to be IGNORANT, to not know that you will loose what you take good care (i am talking about earth).
