Recently the first photo of a black hole was revealed. This black hole is located in a galaxy 54 million light-years away.
Our galaxy is a barred spiral galaxy, it is more than 100,000 light-years in diameter and has 150 billion stars. Our solar system is located in one of the spiral arms of this system, at around 25,000 to 28,000 light years from the center.The center of the galaxy is teeming with black holes: according to an article by astronomer Govert Schilling, there are probably more than 10,000, the largest in the center, Sagittarius A, is over 4 million times as heavy as our sun.
Our planet races through space at a speed of 108,000 km per hour. It has never been thought that this is because our planet may be on the event horizon and is being sucked up. According to our current calculations, this is just not the case…
But … are our calculations correct? If we could look at our position from a distant galaxy of many light years away, and it is possible to look our way with much more sophisticated devices, perhaps that Sagittarius A is gradually eating up all the stars and planets in the entire Milkyway. Who knows?
