The creation of supermassive Black Holes from Dark Matter

A new theoretical study has proposed an unusual mechanism for the creation of supermassive black holes from dark matter.

The international team found that rather than the conventional formation scenarios involving 'normal' matter, supermassive black holes could instead form directly from dark matter in high-density regions in the centers of galaxies. Let's understand the whole of it. Let's go deeper.

The Old School Theory for the formation of Black Holes

The standard black hole formation theory includes baryonic matter, the atoms, and elements that make stars, planets, and all visible objects. When these objects are subjected to immense gravity they turn up into Black Holes, this process is slow and eventual.


Dark Matter Theory for the formation of Black Holes

The new dark matter theory investigates the potential existence of stable galactic cores made of dark matter, and surrounded by a diluted dark matter halo, finding that the centers of these structures could become so concentrated that they could also collapse into supermassive black holes once a critical threshold is reached.

According to the model, this could have happened much more quickly than other proposed formation mechanisms and would have allowed supermassive black holes in the early Universe to form before the galaxies they inhabit, contrary to current understanding.


The End Notes

This model shows how dark matter haloes could harbor dense concentrations at their centers, which may play a crucial role in helping to understand the formation of supermassive black holes. Well, that's all in this article today. You can read more about this in the research paper. I hope you liked it. Keep it up, guys.
