Astrophysicists have identified the center of gravity of the Solar system

Astrophysics from the USA were able to establish the exact location of the center of gravity of the Solar system that is tied to any measure waves of gravity. It is the last professionals determine the existence of black holes.

In the jet propulsion Laboratory decided to determine the location of the barycenter of the center of gravity of the Solar system, where you balance the weight of the Sun and all other celestial bodies. In the end of the study, it became known that it is closer to the surface of hot stars in the center as I could guess. This point is related to the huge mass of Jupiter and the bad into account in the models of its orbit. After making changes in work scientists have found the center of gravity of the Solar system up to 100-meter accuracy, which is comparable with the thickness of hair from the head man on the field for a professional football game.

Experts expressed hope that they will now be able to register gravitational waves that come from pulsars, and identify a lot more unknown of black holes. Knowing the location of the center of gravity, specialists will quickly be able to record any changes in the system. Their work in this direction will continue, and do astrophysicists expect soon to announce a new discovered black holes.

In the scientific community of gravitational waves are ripples of space, the existence of which was said by the famous scientist albert Einstein. Black holes are moved in pairs, they “produce” such waves, and those, in turn, provoke the deformation time, squeezing and stretching it. Before this discovery, experts had found such objects by monitoring the flashes of radio waves from pulsars. These neutron stars have different variances, indicating the curvature of the galaxy because of gravity, RIA Novosti reported.
