A dormant black hole discovered in our neighbouring galaxy

A special team investigating black holes in the cosmos has identified a dormant black hole in the Large Magellanic Cloud, a nearby galaxy.

Astronomers have dubbed this inert mass black hole "Black Hole Destroyer."

According to the researchers, this is the first "dormant" stellar-mass black hole identified outside of the Milky Way galaxy.

The newly discovered black hole is at least nine times the mass of the Sun, and orbits a hot, blue star that weighs 25 times the mass of the Sun.

When large stars approach the end of their lifetimes and collapse under their own gravity, stellar-mass black holes are created.

The star that gave birth to the dormant black hole is said to have vanished without leaving any trace of a connected supernova explosion.

A black hole is said to as inactive if it does not produce a significant amount of X-ray radiation.
