Space is full of mysteries that have stayed unsolved for centuries. But just recently, the universe has baffled the world with a new, frightful abnormality. Evidently, something is ripping holes in the Milky Way, the galaxy that contains our Solar System! ? What if the hole in the Milky Way was ripped by a supermassive black hole like the one that dwells in the center of our galaxy? If it was, it’d be a pretty frightful episode.
If these two black holes got too close, they would not be able to escape one another’s gravity, and a collision may well be inescapable. And it would be an exceedingly furious event. But the thing is that the telescopes failed to find the source of the damage. So what could this unobserved projectile be? Researchers have a few theories.

Is it a stray star? 1:39
Or is it a supermassive black hole? 1:59
And then what? 2:29
What baffles astronomers 3:35
What if it was dark matter that harmed our galaxy? 4:48
The intruder might well be hiding someplace in the galaxy 6:12
The “ghost” galaxy 7:10

– This year, Harvard researcher Dr. Ana Bonaca observed a bizarre commotion in our galaxy’s exceptional streams. An exceptional stream is a line of stars that are moving together through galaxies.
– One day, Dr. Bonaca observed a gap in the stream, and this gap had an irregular ragged verge.
– One hypothesis hints that the intruder is a stray star. Nevertheless, the hole is too humongous for this notion to sound credible.
– Fortunately for us, there are not any supermassive black holes in the vicinity, so this assumption fails to justify the mystifying bullet-hole phenomenon.
– Naturally, astronomers have continued their observations. But what baffles them is that there is no huge object made from plain, light-reflecting matter moving away from the bullet-hole.
– What if it was dark matter that harmed our galaxy, and what if it reached Earth? Not like a stream of normal matter, dark matter would not see the Earth as an impediment. It would just pass through. But that’s not the most astonishing part!
– However, Dr. Bonaca still does not rule out the possible chance that the intruder is a luminous object that, after ripping a hole in the Milky Way, is hiding someplace in the galaxy.
– The intruder could have been moving at an unbelievably high speed, and would not have to be really humongous to rip a hole in the outstanding stream.
– The verge of the galaxy can even contain traces of a “ghost” galaxy – one that’s older than our Milky Way!
– Interestingly, the astronomers who found the “ghost” galaxy, which is a satellite galaxy of the Milky Way, can not clarify its origin and nature. Named Ant 2, the galaxy was nicknamed “ghost” because it is unusually dim.
