Astronomers have discovered a black hole in deep space that stripped a star millions of light-years away from Earth.
The process, known as “spaghettification,” caused the eruption of light 215 million light-years from Earth through a black hole, “the kind of flames recorded to date,” the researchers said in a statement. The light-year, which measures the distance of space, is about 6 trillion miles.
Matt Nicole, lead author of the study at the University of Birmingham in the UK and a research fellow at the Royal Astronomical Society, said in a statement that “sucking” a black hole from a nearby star sounds like science fiction. ”
What’s inside a black hole?
When the star approaches a black hole, the tide collapses. The gravity of a black hole is so intense that it will crush and crush any object that comes close to it, similar to a piece of spaghetti.
The explosion of light was caught by some telescopes around the world, prompting scientists to look into the discrepancy for months to make sure their initial observations were correct.
“The destruction of the star near the supermassive black hole leads to a tidal collapse,” added the author and astronomer of the study at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics Edo Berger. “In this state, the star would feed about half its mass or fill a black hole ten million times the Sun’s, and the other half would be extruded.”
These events (these are known as AT 2019 kicks) are incredibly rare to find, but were easier to analyze because they were discovered as soon as possible, said Kate Alexander, a NASA Einstein Fellow at Northwestern University.
“This is a unique‘ behind-the-scenes peek ’that provided the first opportunity to direct the origin of obscure material and follow in real time how black holes are contained.
“The AT 2019 quiz is the closest tidal distraction event found to date, and therefore, is surprisingly well observed in the electromagnetic spectrum,” Berger added. “This is the first case in which we have seen direct evidence for gas flow during a disruption and excitation process that explains both optical and radio emissions we have seen in the past. So far, the nature of these emissions has been heavily debated, but here we see that The two regimes are connected by the same process. This phenomenon is teaching us about the origins of supermassive black holes and the detailed physical processes of mass ejection. “
The research was published in the monthly notice of the Royal Astronomical Society.
‘Strong,’ Mysterious Bbjects Orbiting Spots in Milky Way Black Holes
In January, astronomers discovered four “strange” objects around a huge black hole in the center of the Milky Way galaxy called Smoke A *.
In May 2019, astronomers observed the sudden luminosity of Sagittarius A *, indicating that it may have been exposed to another celestial body. S.G.R. Also known as, * it is a million million times faster than the Sun and ૨ 25,000 light-years from Earth.
October In October 2018, astronomers observed the SGRA * pulling gas blobs in its vortex at a speed of 30% of the published speed.
