A Mysterious Object Punched a Hole in the Milky Way, Scientists Are Confused

Space is full of mysteries that have remained unsolved for centuries. But recently, the cosmos has baffled the world with a new, scary abnormality. Apparently, something is tearing holes in the Milky Way, the galaxy that contains our Solar System! 😮 What if the hole in the Milky Way was torn by a supermassive black hole like the one that dwells in the center of our galaxy? If it was, it’d be a pretty scary scenario.

If these two black holes got too close, they wouldn’t be able to escape each other’s gravity, and a collision might be inevitable. And it would be an extremely violent event. But the thing is that the telescopes failed to find the source of the damage. So what could this unseen bullet be? Scientists have several theories.

– This year, Harvard scientist Dr. Ana Bonaca noticed a weird disturbance in our galaxy’s stellar streams. A stellar stream is a line of stars that are moving together through galaxies.
– One day, Dr. Bonaca noticed a gap in the stream, and this gap had a strange ragged edge.
– One theory suggests that the intruder is a stray star. However, the hole is too enormous for this idea to sound plausible.
– Luckily for us, there aren’t any supermassive black holes in the vicinity, so this theory fails to explain the mysterious bullet-hole phenomenon.
– Naturally, astronomers have continued their observations. But what baffles them is that there’s no large object made from ordinary, light-reflecting matter moving away from the bullet-hole.
– What if it was dark matter that harmed our galaxy, and what if it reached Earth? Unlike a stream of regular matter, dark matter wouldn’t see the Earth as an obstacle. It would just pass through. But that’s not the most amazing part!
– However, Dr. Bonaca still doesn’t rule out the possibility that the intruder is a luminous object that, after tearing a hole in the Milky Way, is hiding somewhere in the galaxy.
– The intruder could’ve been moving at an incredibly high speed, and wouldn’t have to be very massive to tear a hole in the stellar stream.
– The edge of the galaxy can even contain traces of a “ghost” galaxy – one that’s older than our Milky Way!
– Curiously, the astronomers who discovered the “ghost” galaxy, which is a satellite galaxy of the Milky Way, can’t explain its origin and nature. Named Ant 2, the galaxy was dubbed “ghost” because it’s weirdly dim.

    Hey there, BrightSiders, if you could fly to ANY planet in the Solar System, where would you go?

    I love how this guy in the video concludes 100% that there is a blackhole in our milky way galaxy. He is spreading false information to people. A blackhole in our milk way is just a theory and it's not 100% proven. This dude makes it sound like it's actually 100% proven. We haven't even left our solar system yet.

    big black hole in the universe exists
    us wait, that's illegal

    It migh be a black hole * continues to talk about what would happen if its a black hole* unfortunately, there aren't any black hole around

    CERN is responsible and already has caused reality shifts. Look at the increased rash of Mandela effects.

    So, are we talking "holes" as in punctures akin to poking a hole through paper? Or are we talking about huge gaps of missing stars?

    I hope black holes eat this planet up and everythings covered in darkness and despair, death and nothingness.

    If there were a credible threat to human existence that is imminent….anyone who knew of it would "disappear" because no government would want the public to know about it. Imagine if we were all told by the US President a black hole will consume the earth in 2 years and it has been confirmed by 100 nations….the earth would decend into apocalyptic chaos!!!. Instead governments would rather us go about our lives in peace until the end.
