Black Hole anomaly

29 November 2017

A black hole anomaly – see https://phys.org/print431092750.html … at the centre of our galaxy, in the immediate vicinity of the Milky Way's supermassive black hole, is a region of intense ultra violet light and x-ray radiation. This sort of activity is not thought to be conducive to new star formation – yet it is. New observations from ALMA (the Atacama Large Millimetre/submillimetre Array) have recorded eleven low mass stars forming perilously close to the smacking lips of the aforesaid black hole. They are just 3 light years away. This should not be possible, we are told – but impossibility has come to life.
