Scientists discovered in the Universe is a giant ring

The x-ray sources in the galaxy have formed an unusual structure in the form of a giant ring

New data from telescopes Chandra and Hubble has allowed scientists to observe an unusual phenomenon in the Universe – an unusual ring giant size in the galaxy AM 0644-741. This structure is in the form of a ring formed by the collision of two galaxies. The object probably formed binary star systems in which there is either a neutron star or a black hole, writes the with reference for Today.

The second oddity is that all sources of radiation in the ring belong to the group of ultraluminous (ULXs) – such structures generate more energy more than ordinary binary system.

But they don’t live long – a few million years, by the standards of the Universe is almost instant. At the end of the life cycle become supermassive black holes or neutron stars with a huge mass.

Outer ring was formed after the expanding gas ring from the collision of two galaxies has launched the process of birth of new stars. Such ring structures is a real joy for astronomers. With their help it is very convenient to study the mechanisms of formation of binary star systems and the behavior of ULXs.
