The comet is travelling at a speed of 158,084 miles per hour (71 kilometres per second), but due to its distance from the Earth, it will appear as a slow-moving object to observers
Fastest-orbiting asteroid discovered in Solar System; takes 113 Earth days to complete one lap around Sun
The asteroid is also very close to the Sun’s massive gravitational field, where it faces the largest general relativistic effects of any known Solar System object so far.
The project was announced a month after the Pentagon released a report about unidentified aerial phenomena, which stated that their nature was unclear.
The last 500 orbits before the neutron stars were swallowed took less than a minute and generated as much energy as all the visible light in the observable universe.
Researchers believe that this black hole could be an ancient relic that was created before the first stars and galaxies formed.
The discovery opens up the possibility of black hole mergers in globular clusters – a potential source of gravitational waves.
Blazars, or feeding supermassive black holes, are popular astronomical subjects due to their complicated mechanism of emission.
The observation was possible because of the works of a minisatellite called HaloSat that was launched from the ISS in 2018.
Musk said the satellites had been fitted with VisorSat that acts as a set of shades that keep the sun from reflecting off the satellites.
The objects could be a spherical shock wave generated from the blast from powerful events such as fast radio bursts, gamma-ray bursts or neutron star mergers.
The cluster of stars itself is located in the Carina region of our galaxy, about 8000 light-years away.
The collision took place 7.5 billion light-years from Earth and the black holes were about the size of Long Island.
The FRB in question reports like clockwork, in one of the most definitive patterns seen from a source of these flashes.
The time between each beat could reveal key information – particularly about the matter near the black hole, and its size.
"The flash was so powerful that it lit up the stream like a Christmas tree — it was a cataclysmic event!" said Principal Investigator Andrew Fox from STScI.
New type of Trojan asteroid discovered near Jupiter has an orbit like an asteroid but the tail of a comet
It is believed that Trojan asteroids have large amounts of ice beneath their surfaces, but there was never any evidence untill now.
Milky Way is a disc-shaped sea of stars in which the youngest and brightest stars cluster in the spiral arms.
The nebula's centre has more than 100 of the galaxy’s most massive young stars, that are bigger than the Sun
The new launch joined 120 similar spacecraft that were launched last year in May and November.
Turns out researchers caught something extra in this particular pulsar — a signature, in the form of a huge thermonuclear flash
