A giant black hole that spins slower than its peers

Credit: Chandra X-ray Center Astronomers take made a record-breaking measurement of a black hole’s spin, ane of two key backdrop of black holes. NASA’southward Chandra 10-ray Observatory shows this black hole is spinning slower than most of its smaller cousins. This is the most massive black hole with an accurate spin measurement and gives hints well-nigh how some… Read More »
