Most Distant Black Hole X-Ray Blast Discovered

This composite image shows the most distant X-ray jet ever observed. X-ray data from NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory are shown in blue, radio data from the NSF's Very Large Array are shown in purple and optical data from NASA's Hubble Space Te


What will survive this battle of the galaxies? Known as Seyfert's Sextet, this intriguing group of galaxies lies in the head portion of the split constellation of the Snake (Serpens).

NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has found that the black hole at the center of our Milky Way galaxy ate its last big meal about 6 million years ago, when it consumed a large clump of infalling gas. After the meal, the engorged black hole burped out a colossal bubble of gas weighing the equivalent of millions of suns, which now billows above and below our galaxy's center.

Hubble dates black hole's last big meal

The massive black hole ate its last big meal about 6 million years ago, when it consumed a large clump of infalling gas.

When a star encounters a black hole, tidal forces stretch the star into an elongated blob before tearing it apart, as seen in these images from a computer simulation by James Guillochon of Harvard University.

New study shows what happens during the destruction of a star as it falls into a black hole, contradicting a 2012 report of the disruption of an exotic helium star Enrico Ramirez-Ruiz uses computer simulations to explore the universe’s most violent.

Centaurus A (NGC 5128) : Merging Galaxies - This merger has a supermassive black hole, about 55 million solar masses, that is ejecting a relativistic jet responsible for X-ray and radio wavelength emissions. The jet is moving at about half the speed of light. This composite is from APEX/radio/orange, Chandra/X-ray/blue/ESO/visible light, which shows background stars and the vast dust lane in near "true color"

Sometimes all you need is a little space...and to see an awesome gamma ray blast via a supercool black hole spewing massive amounts of energy all over the place.

A Black hole spewing its energy deep into space. (A gamma ray burst) Awesome.
