Strangely tilted black hole challenges formation theories

A tilted black hole spinning around a misaligned axis has been discovered in our galaxy, challenging theories of black hole formation.

The black hole and its companion star form a system called MAXI J1820+070, which lies some 10,000 light-years away from Earth. The system was first spotted by NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory in 2018. But recent optical observations by the Nordic Optical Telescope in the Canary Islands revealed that the black hole behaves in ways that defy astronomers’ expectations.
