NASA’s IXPE Helps Solve Black Hole Jet Mystery

Astrophysicists solve mystery of 40-year-old black hole jet with NASA’s IXPE

This illustration shows NASA’s IXPE spacecraft, right, observing blazar Markarian 501, left. A blazar is a black hole surrounded by a disk of gas and dust with a bright jet of high-energy particles pointed at Earth. The inset illustration shows high energy particles in the jet (blue).
