Youngest Black Hole Discovered (News)

Astronomers have discovered the youngest black hole. This black hole is only 30 years old which is found in the nearby galaxy of M100. The black hole is said to be the remnant of SN 1979C. What makes this discovery really interesting is that, this is the first time we have been able to see the birth of a black hole. This discovery could be helpful to learn more about the working of the black holes.

Scientists think that the star which collapsed to give birth to this black hole is about 20 times massive than our Sun. Even though most of the evidences show that it is a black hole, there is a possibility that it could be a rapidly spinning neutron star. If this was the case, then it could be the youngest known neutron star.
