New data confirm that black holes are a kind of “cycles of dormancy and activity.”
Scientists from the University of Colorado at boulder have discovered a unique phenomenon – a supermassive black hole, which threw the matter twice in a row.
Telescopes have detected a flare in the center of the galaxy J1354 located at a distance of 800 million light-years from Earth, writes the Internet-the edition with reference to .
Double ejection of matter, according to the authors of the study, occurred within 100 thousand years. The approximate break between emissions scientists have found the speed of the so-called Fermi bubbles, which flew from a black hole.
New data confirm that black holes are a kind of “cycles of dormancy and activity.” When the absorption of gases or stars, generated a powerful outflow of high-energy particles, similar in power to the event horizon.
“Black holes are voracious eaters, but they have absolutely no understanding of table etiquette. We know many examples of black holes that make one ejection of matter, but we have discovered a galaxy with a black hole, which has made not one, but two such emissions,” says Julie Comerford, senior researcher, astronomer of the University of Colorado in boulder.
The black hole in question is a supermassive object in the center of the galaxy SDSS J1354+1327, or J1354. It is 800 million light-years from Earth. Black hole found the staff of the Chandra Observatory. It was a very bright point x-ray emission bright enough to be in the millions or even billions of times more massive than the Sun.”This galaxy really caught us by surprise. We were able to show that the gas from the Northern part of the galaxy meet the growing edge of the shock wave and gas from the southern part of the meet the older outflow from the black hole,” said the person, Rebecca Nevin.
