A black hole was discovered that refutes physical laws (3 photos + video)

The modern concept of black holes is based on models developed at ground-based research centers. However, observing these objects using space observatories provides a huge amount of unique information that can completely change the idea of the nature of the formation and life cycle of a black hole. Black holes are currently classified as weak and strong. The latter have a huge mass, attract a huge amount of substance, which forms a bright accretion disk. Weak black holes, according to the model, cannot have accretion circles, since a little matter accumulates around them. However, the research data of a black hole from the galaxy NGC 3147, obtained by the Hubble Space Telescope, will force astronomers to reconsider the theoretical foundations for the formation of a worldview regarding black holes. The relatively small NGC 3147, located 130 million light-years from Earth, has a mass of 250 million Suns and is ranked as a weak black hole when studied with traditional telescopes. However, when NGC 3147 came into view of the Hubble Space Telescope, it turned out that there was a distinct, though dim, accretion disk around the black hole. A faint glow turns NGC 3147 into a small quasar. The structure of this accretion disk is exactly the same as that of the disks accompanying strong black holes. The difference lies only in the size and strength of the glow, which is hundreds of thousands of times weaker than that of “normal” accretion disks. In such a disc, which refutes modern ideas about the nature of black holes, matter is very close to the center of the hole, and it is dispersed with a velocity component 0.1 of the speed of light. Due to the high mass of the BH that exceeds the solar mass and 250 million times, the outgoing light of the radiation is shifted to the red part of the spectrum. The information received will force scientists to reconsider some of the familiar propositions of modern gas dynamics models and develop new models to explain the nature of black holes. In the meantime, astronomers have called NGC 3147 \
