Forget this world. How about this galaxy?
About 5 million years ago, one star came too close to the "dazzling" black hole in the center of the galaxy galaxy and was "ejected", according to a new study.
The star, known as S5-HVS1, ventured too close to the black hole and was hurled "at a speed of 6 million kilometers per hour". When astronomers discovered it, it "moved almost ten times faster than most stars in the galaxy".

" Return, "said Douglas Boubert, one of the co-authors of the study, in a statement.
The lead author of the study, Sergey Kospov, said the discovery was "super exciting," as astronomers had long suspected black holes would be able to cast stars, but they'd never seen it before.
"We believe the black hole ejected the star about 5 million years ago at a speed of thousands of miles per second," Kospov added to the statement at the time when humanity's ancestors were just learning on two legs to run.
Researchers have also posted a video on YouTube showing how the star was likely ejected.
"It's really amazing to see this star," said study co-author Ting Li in the statement, adding, "as we know it has formed in the Galactic Center, a place different from ours It is a visitor from a foreign country. "
The study was published in the journal Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society.
FIRST BLACK HOLE PICTURE DETECTED
In October In 2018, astronomers observed the supermassive black hole in the center of the Milky Way, known as the Sagittarius A *, and dragged gas blobs into its vortex at 30 percent of the speed of light. * It is assumed that Sagittarius A * has a mass greater than the 4 Millions of times the mass of our Sun is about 25,000 light-years from Earth.
In May 2019, astronomers observed the sudden brightening of Sagittarius A * suggesting it may have come into contact with another celestial object.
