Scientists spot beam of black hole energy as bright as 1,000 trillion suns pointed at Earth

Scientists spot beam of black hole energy as bright as 1,000 trillion suns pointed at Earth

Image: Carl Knox – OzGrav, ARC Center of Excellence for Gravitational Wave Discovery, Swinburne University of Technology On a clear night last February, a sophisticated astronomical camera perched on top of a California mountain opened its eyes to the sky after being turned off for several days due to problems. The timing turned out to …

Mysteriously bright flash is a black hole jet pointing directly at Earth, astronomers say

Earlier this year, astronomers were monitoring data from the Zwicky Transient Facility, an all-sky survey based at the Palomar Observatory in California, when they detected an extraordinary flash in a part of the sky where no such light is present. had been observed at night. before. By a rough calculation, the flash seemed to emit …

Bright light from black holes caused by particle shock waves

Bright light from black holes caused by particle shock waves

Scientists have reported a “huge leap forward” in understanding light and other electromagnetic radiation emitted by black holes using NASA’s recently deployed $188 million IXPE Space Telescope. Beams of electrons crash into slower-moving particles, causing a shock wave that results in electromagnetic radiation across frequency bands from X-rays to visible light, according to a research …

Pannier sees ‘the future is so bright’ for gene therapy

Development of vaccines for covid-19 in 2020 was a huge step forward for more than 150 years of genetic research and paved the way for an explosion of medical therapies that could save countless lives. Angie Pannier, Swarts Family Chair in Biological Systems Engineering, delivered the Nebraska Lecture Nov. 17, outlining the history of her …
