Black Hole Police Discovered The Dormant Black Hole Just Outside Our Own Galaxy For The Very First Time.

An unusually bright, suspended black hole has been discovered in a nearby new universe, according to a new research based on observations relayed by ESO's Very Large Telescope. Astronomers have discovered a new type of black hole, one that does not emit high levels of X-ray radiation like most black holes. Called a "dormant stellar-mass black hole," this phenomenon had not been "unambiguously detected outside our galaxy," according to the team of US and European Southern Observatory's researchers involved in the study.
