Up until now, supermassive black holes are a big mystery in the science world. All scientists and experts know is that it is a very destructive force that is devastating and sucking out the life of living matters in space. But recent studies shows that the event might be one step of unraveling the hidden fifth force of the universe. Could this be true?
The universe is the home of many galaxies, stars, moons, planets and minor planets, the whole intergalactic space and all matter and energy. Since the time of ancient Greek and Indian philosopher up to the present time of high-end technology, the study of the universe appears to be never ending and supemassive black holes are one of those baffling mystery in the science world.
According to Scientific American, supermassive black holes have been a destructive event in the space that no one can ever stop it. Studies say that the damaging effect of it can destroy the habitability of the planets throughout the whole universe. Scientists also say that it is inevitable that the Milky Way is not safe in such horrifying incident.
Supermassive black holes, also known as quasars, exist in the center of any galaxy and many astronomers or scientists are not certain on the quantitative effects of it. But a recent study shows that quasars can carry strong winds that would bring harmful particles that cause the damaging effects. Aside from that, light coming from quasars are also destructive once it illuminates the atmosphere of a planet, high energy photons can destroy the atmospheric particle which is the signal of the end of that planet.
But, another study claimed that supermassive black holes could reveal the mystifying fifth force of the universe. According to Futurism, physicists was able to develop a system that can trace hidden force in the universe. Four forces have already been discovered namely gravity, electromagnetic force, the weak nuclear forces and the strong nuclear forces.
Scientists believed that by studying the supermassive black holes might be the key to unraveling the fifth force of the universe. Now, the team is monitoring a star called SO-2 that will be in a head on collision with a supermassive black hole next year. With that impending event, scientists and researchers are hopeful that it could lead to the discovery of the alleged fifth force.
