New findings from NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope likely confirm the existence of a black hole in our galaxy.
The mass of nothingness is believed to be 5,000 light years away in the Carina-Sagittarius spiral arm of the Milky Way galaxy. However, its discovery over the last six years of research has led scientists to believe there is a closer black hole, only about 80 light years away. Don’t fret just yet—neither are anywhere near sucking up the Earth. But the discovery is a first for scientists and a milestone for Hubble.
