MILLIONS of invisible black holes are thought to be wandering the Milky Way galaxy, experts have claimed, after a team of astrophysicists found one lurking in a gas cloud.
By analysing the gas motion of a cosmic cloud shooting through our galaxy at 100 kilometres per second, researchers discovered a black hole lurking inside.
Following the revelation, scientists believe there could be millions of these black holes wandering the galaxy.
Black holes are something of a mystery, with experts still knowing relatively little about them.
However, what they do know is that they have such an intense gravitational pull that not even light can escape from their grasp.
If there are truly millions of these black holes within the galaxy, it would put every planet and star at risk.
