So seeing this black hole all by itself, without a star is intriguing. It is now being theorized that there are other black holes out there. And we just can’t see them.


According to Stanford Professor Roger Blandford, an expert in physics and particle physics, this phenomenon validates Einstein’s theory of relativity.


“Fifty years ago, when astrophysicists started speculating about how the magnetic field might behave close to a black hole, they had no idea that one day we might have the techniques to observe this directly and see Einstein’s general theory of relativity in action,” Blandford, a co-author of one of the latest studies on the rogue black hole phenomenon said.
