This isolated black hole is roaming our Milky Way galaxy

A black hole several times the mass of our Sun is drifting through our Milky Way galaxy. The black hole, which is the crushed remnant of a massive star that exploded as a supernova, lies about 5,000 light-years away, in the Carina-Sagittarius spiral arm of our galaxy. Earlier this year, NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope provided … Read more
