Astronomers have found a black hole which rotates with a speed close to velocity of light
Black holes - very fascinating, but not new phenomena. And here the black hole rotating at one of the highest observed speeds - absolutely another story. Before such holes it has been found only four.

B the first Indian astronomical AstroSat satellite has found 2016 a black hole in binary star system under the name 4U 1630-47 which threw up from itself x-ray radiation that astronomers have counted quite unusual. Later the x-ray observatory NASA Chandra has confirmed this emission.

Has become clear that these X-rays have been caused by hit of gas and dust in a black hole that approximately by 10 times exceeds the mass of the Sun. This case allows scientists to draw a conclusion that an object rotates extremely quickly.

according to NASA, this black hole rotates rather close to the limit set by the Theory of relativity of Albert Einstein as Rodrigo Nemmen, the leading author of a research claims. Therefore, her speed almost reaches velocity of light. The research was conducted by scientists from several institutions led by Institute of basic researches Tata in India, it is accepted to the publication in the The Astrophysical Journal magazine.
