Hubble spots rogue black hole wandering the Milky Way alone

Scientists have discovered the first rogue black hole to wander through our galaxy. Using the Hubble Space Telescope, the team not only spotted the rogue object, but also directly measured its mass — something that researchers in the past could only infer.

The stellar-mass black hole is located about 5,000 light-years from Earth in the Carina Sagittarius spiral arm Milky Way. Usually such objects have companion stars, but this one is alone.
