Black holes are awesome yet scary thanks to their reputation of having gravitational pulls so strong not even light can escape. So let's give a big welcome to Gaia BH1, the new closest black hole to Earth. ⁠⁠The team behind the discovery says it's three times closer to Earth than the previous winner, a black hole located in the Monoceros constellation. Luckily, Gaia BH1 is dormant and located about 1,600 light-years away in the constellation Ophiuchus, but remains 10 times more massive than our sun.⁠⁠Despite this great distance, the massive black hole is still close enough that the National Science Foundation's NOIRLab astronomy center considers it to be "in our cosmic backyard."⁠⁠Tap the link in our bio to read more.⁠⁠#BlackHole #Space #Science
