The birth of a black hole has created the brightest space explosion ever

A record The most powerful sky-lighting space explosion we’ve ever seen was caused by a structured jet carrying massive amounts of exploded stellar innards aimed directly at Earth, scientists have determined. The gamma-ray burst GRB 221009A, detected in October last yearwas so brilliant that our instruments struggled to measure it. But as clues emerged, scientists … Read more

Mysterious cosmic threads are stretching from the Milky Way's monstrous black hole

MeerKAT image of the galactic center with color-coded position angles of all filaments. (Image credit: Farhad Yusef-Zadeh/Northwestern University) The Milky Way is filled with cosmic threads extending from the supermassive black hole at the center of our galaxy. Hundreds of gas filaments, each 5-10 light years in length, align the galactic center and radiate outward … Read more
