NASA has captured something HUGE escaping a supermassive black hole
Two NASA telescopes managed to capture the moment a supermassive Black Hole’s corona launched out of the cosmic devourer. The corona associated with Mrk 335 ejected from the black hole travelling at about 20 per cent the speed of light.
Just when you thought things at NASA couldn’t get more exciting bam… they capture a mysterious ‘huge’ mass of energy somehow escaping a ‘supermassive black hole’. Alien you say? Well let’s not get ahead of ourselves here, it is a possibility but it’s quite likely that it’s just another super rare cosmic phenomenon.
Fiona Harrison, principal investigator of NuSTAR at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, said: ‘The nature of the energetic source of X-rays we call the corona is mysterious, but now with the ability to see dramatic changes like this we are getting clues about its size and structure.’
