The discovery of three black holes from three galaxies merging into a triple active galactic nucleus was announced Friday by India’s government ministry of science and technology, according to the ministry.
It is a small region at the heart of a newly discovered galaxy that has a far higher luminosity than typical, according to a statement from the ministry of culture, science, and technology. According to the researchers, “This extremely unusual occurrence in our neighbouring universe implies that small merging groups are good laboratories for finding multiple accreting supermassive black holes and boosts the likelihood of detecting such extremely rare occurrences.”
In an investigation of the known interacting galaxy pair, NGC7733 and NGC7734, a team of researchers from the Indian Institute of Astrophysics discovered anomalous emissions coming from the centre of NGC7734 and a big, luminous clump along the northern arm of NGC7733, according to the ministry.
According to their findings, the clump is travelling at a different speed than the galaxy NGC7733 itself. Rather than being a component of NGC7733, the scientists believed that this clump was a little independent galaxy hidden beneath the arm of NGC7733. The galaxy was given the designation NGC7733N, according to the statement.
In order to conduct their research, the researchers collected data from the Ultraviolet Imaging Telescope (UVIT), the European integral field optical telescope (MUSE) in Chile, and infrared pictures from the optical telescope (IRSF) in South Africa.
According to the Ministry of Science and Technology, supermassive black holes are difficult to detect since they emit no light. However, by engaging with their surroundings, they
