This hypothesis, as reported by portal SPACE.com, has put forward an international team of astronomers led by Dr. Sergei Nayakshina from Leicester University (University of Leicester) in the UK. Their detailed paper on this subject will be released in the next issue of the journal Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society. International research team studied the supermassive black holes located in the center of many galaxies. Approximately half of these holes is surrounded by thick rings of cosmic dust. The origin of this dust is still not clear Nayakshin and colleagues suggested that this should be the strongest conflicts between asteroids and planets, taking place in the powerful gravitational field of a black hole. They face at speeds of millions of km / h over and over again until they are not left only dust. On this assumption astronomers inspired the so-called zodiacal light – weak emission, observed on Earth shortly after sunset, or in front of him.
