The Southern European Hemisphere Research Organization (ESO) says it has discovered three surprisingly large black holes near each other and forms a large mass of celestial bodies. This finding is interesting because black holes are normally nestled in the center of its own galaxy.
By Chili's VLT de Cerro Paranal telescope and WM Keck in Hawaii, the most modern in the world, astronomers have identified the location of this unprecedented three-dimensional body. It is about 10.5 billion light years from Earth, heading towards the constellation Vierge.
No one can see black holes because they are like names, they are completely " black ". Black holes are so big that their gravitational pull pulls everything that passes through it, even light quanta of zero mass and moving at 300,000 km / sec cannot escape. okay when touching it. However, black holes are reflected by quasar radiation (quasar). When interstellar dust particles are attracted to the black hole, a huge source of light is generated and this is called quasar radiation.

Scientists say these quasars have about a billion more suns inside, so just one quasar could glow much more than a galaxy of hundreds of billions of stars. The trajectories of quasars are about 4,000 light-years away, from the center, they move at speeds of about 200km / h.
The detection of a third block of black holes also means the discovery of three giant quasar radiation sources converging at one point.
Until now, astronomers have only discovered about 100,000 quasars including about a few dozen pairs, ie cases of two quasars are close to each other, but there has never been a block of 3 quasars. Three quasars were discovered only 100,000 to 150,000 light-years apart, an extremely short distance, corresponding only to our galaxy's size.
Mr. George Djorgovski of the California Institute of Technology, the owner of this new finding, emphasized: "Quasars are extremely rare objects and are distributed in the universe unevenly. Finding two quasars close together is really difficult. but in this case, there are 3 quasars close together, spinning around each other.
It is not an " illusion of gravity " but is actually a large mass of three quasar objects. M. Djorgovski declared so. This large mass is considered a galaxies, which can deform the space around it, causing light rays to change direction or converge. When light rays converge, standing under the ground one can observe many identical images of 3 quasars because they are almost a block. However, M. Djorgovski said there is still a difference but a very small difference between the 3 quasars.
The existence of three closely related quasars can be explained by a collision between three galaxies, a phenomenon that frequently occurs during the early Universe. At that time, in a narrow space, galaxies overlap.
