Astronomers notices how Black Hole was delivered to the spiral galaxy by another smaller galaxy

On Friday, a new study using the data from NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory and Hubble Space Telescope noticed how a large black hole might have been delivered to the spiral galaxy NGC 4424 by another, smaller galaxy, HDTech reports.

Hubble tweeted that the special delivery from Hubble and @ChandraXray! by using these observatories, Astronomera might have noticed how a smaller galaxy potentially delivers a large black hole to the spiral galaxy NGC 4424.

It is can be known that the location of NGC 4424 is about 54 million light-years from Earth in the Virgo Galaxy cluster.

Describing the images shared by Hubble, the report states that the main panel of this image which was released previously shows a wide-field view of the galaxy in optical light from Hubble. The image is about 45000 light-years wide. It is expected that the center of the galaxy will host a large black hole that is estimated to have a mass between about 60000 and 100000 Suns.

They are also expected to be millions of stellar mass black holes, containing between about 5 and 30 solar masses, spread all over the galaxy.
