Hubble Images Nucleus of Andromeda Galaxy
The Hubble space telescope has taken a picture of the
Nucleus of Andromeda Galaxy. Also known as spiral galaxy M31
Andromeda has a supermassive central black hole of about 100,000,000
solar masses. The black hole's event horizon is not visible in what
is the sharpest visible-light picture of the nucleus of a galaxy
other than our own, but it can be found near the middle of the small
cluster of blue stars at the image's center. This cluster is
surrounded by a larger ring of mainly red stars that give the
apparents of a double nucleus.
Here we have yet another case where reality goes against the standard models. This discovery shows that either the standard model of how stars work and are formed are wrong.
