One of the brightest stars in the universe has disappeared from the sky. Scientists have not counted a large object in one of the dwarf galaxies of the constellation Aquarius. In their opinion, it could have become a black hole, bypassing transformation into a supernova or hiding behind a cloud of dust.
For the last eight years, the blue giant has been in its final stages of existence. This was evidenced by periodic fluctuations in its brightness and dramatic changes in its spectral structure.
