Supermassive Black Hole Eats A Star
Researchers from the International Center for Radio Astronomy Research (ICRAR) have documented a supermassive black hole 300 light years away from Earth devoured a sun-sized star. The black hole after devouring the star shoots debris from its center that the researchers say an unusual behavior.
A massive black hole has been caught by the ICRAR anchoring at the center of a nearby galaxy consumes a star with the size of our solar system's Sun and afterwards shoots jets of wreckage from the space vacuum's center nearly like the speed of light. This event happens when a star wanders too close to space vacuums as intense gravity coming from it pulls a star apart and forms a disk of debris after it consumes it. During this rare intergalactic event, researchers were carefully observing this and spotted materials blasting out from the center of the intergalactic abyss stating that this behavior is unusual as it is not known to vomit out what it consumes.
Astrophysicist Gemma Anderson from ICRAR stated that the research facility has seen 20 of such events but it is an unusual event that they see a black hole actually eats a star. Research suggests that in every intergalactic abyss that devours a star, a "jet" should be seen, and this has been only detected in a few number of powerful systems in outer space.
Johns Hopkins University Researcher Sjoert van Velzen heard news in December 2014 regarding a radio telescope based in Hawaii observed a star's destruction. After three months, he then joined other scientists to follow up progress of the space vacuum's tracks.
Black holes are known as a rare space occurrence that pulls in matter and not release them. However, researchers want to know where the intergalactic abyss takes the matter it devours out of its system. In addition, as predicted in space vacuum models, they want to experience the hole discharge plasma jets after its interstellar meal. This particular event gave the researchers a chance to observe its behavior as they confirm measurements of this process of how a black hole actually functions.
Van Velzen added that from this observation, they learned that the stream of galactic wreckage can organize and therefore create a jet in haste. This is valuable information in fashioning a comprehensive concept about black holes in space.
