A new theory of the formation of the cosmos is shedding light on the origins of the first stars, and suggests that the earliest stars were the result of the merger of a pair of massive stars, or “supernovae”.
The new theory proposes that a starburst is triggered when one of the supermassive black holes (or black holes) in a galaxy collapses, and the star bursts inwards, expanding in a way that causes the galaxy to expand.
This explosion of material is called the Big Bang.
“When the black hole explodes, it is creating the explosion that is responsible for the formation and evolution of the stars,” said Professor Timo J. Janssens, an astrophysicist at the University of Washington.
“It is just one of a number of possible causes of the explosion, and we just don’t know which of these is the best.”
To put it another way, if the theory is right, it would mean that the Big Battle in the universe is the result not of the collision of two massive stars but rather the merger and collapse of two black holes.
“The theory is pretty straightforward,” said Jansstens.
“If we see this supermassive explosion, we expect it to lead to the creation of new stars.”
The first star The theory suggests that stars can be born from a single event in which one of two supermassive stars, known as a supernova, detonates.
“We know for a fact that this is how the first star is born, so the probability that we can have two black stars in a supermassive star is quite low,” Janssen said.
“But this has nothing to do with the initial explosion of the black holes, so this is not the only possible scenario.”
“But we don’t have the full story yet,” said David W. Hirst, an astronomer at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), who has been involved in the research.
What the new theory means for the cosmos The theory also predicts that the first galaxies are probably more complex than expected. “
I think the main takeaway here is that we should be careful about how we interpret the Big bang and supernovae as being the key to the origin of stars.”

“So the question is, what is the first thing we should expect to see in the first few thousand years after the Big Boom?”
For one, the model predicts that stars will appear after a supernovac that creates a super-massive black hole, or a black hole that has exploded inwards.
“These supermassive objects will be ejected into space as black holes,” said Hirst.
“There will be an explosion in space, and these black holes will then collide with one another.
The black dot and other supermassive galaxies would then merge into one larger galaxy, producing more and more black dots until the galaxy was eventually formed. “
And that black dot will then get absorbed by other black holes in the galaxy and then it will become a new star that will form in a new galaxy.”
The black dot and other supermassive galaxies would then merge into one larger galaxy, producing more and more black dots until the galaxy was eventually formed.
“All of this will be happening in a few thousand million years,” said W. J. Hinton, an astrobiologist at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), who was not involved in this work.
“What this tells us is that our galaxy is really starting to form, and at this stage, the Big Bump is still a part of the galaxy.”
“What we are seeing here is a huge explosion in a single galaxy that is about half the size of our Milky Way,” said N. A. Jain, an astronomy professor at the Georgia Institute of Science in Atlanta.
“This explosion creates a lot of black holes that are captured and ejected from other galaxies into the first galaxy.”
Jain believes that the supernova is a precursor for the creation and evolution, and explains that it is likely that a galaxy with a large number of black dots would then be born.
“That is the idea that we are trying to get across in this paper, and in my opinion, it makes sense,” said K. N. Gopalan, a theoretical astrophysicist at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City.
“In other words, we think the explosion is just the first step in the creation process.”
What we don, however, know about the first black hole Black holes are massive, spinning black holes which are thought to be the source of the very first stars in the cosmos.
These objects are thought by some to be around ten times the mass of the sun.
Astronomers are trying very hard to determine the precise mass of a blackhole, but
