Shockwaves of Star Formation - Galaxy M106Galaxy M106 has mysterious “invisible” spiral arms that only become visible when you observe its X-rays. While the spiral arms propagate like shockwaves around M106, they create bursts of star formation with heat equivalent to 10 million suns. Astrophysicists believe that there is a supermassive black hole at the center of M106. It is theorized that this supermassive blackhole is jetting out high-energy particles into the galaxies.
El descubrimiento de un agujero negro supermasivo desde los primeros cosmos está configurado para reescribir la física, dicen los científicos......The discovery of a supermassive black hole from the early cosmos is set to rewrite physics, say scientists. Más
Supermassive black hole spins super-fast - Imagine a sphere more than 2 million miles across - eight times the distance from Earth to the Moon - spinning so fast that its surface is traveling at nearly the speed of light. Such an object exists: the supermassive black hole at the center of the spiral galaxy NGC 1365.
