NASA Saw Something Come Out Of A Black Hole For The First Time Ever

Link: http://www.thespaceacademy.org/2017/09/nasa-saw-something-come-out-of-black.html?fbclid=IwAR2OWdTP5yM7NJpZjKV2zmnZz3tzVe4A8iYW9jDj5avokTrqfaBP_istbY8#.XGHKVjMzaUm

You don’t have to know a whole lot about science to know that black holes normally suck things in, not spew things out. But NASA detected something mighty bizarre at the supermassive black hole Markarian 335. Two of NASA’s space telescopes, including the Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array (NuSTAR), amazingly observed a black hole’s corona “launched” away from the supermassive black hole.

Then an enormous pulse of X-ray energy spewed out. This kind of phenomena has never been observed before.
“This is the first time we have been able to link the launching of the corona to a flare. This will help us comprehend how supermassive black holes power some of the brightest objects in the cosmos.” Dan Wilkins, of Saint Mary’s University, said. This is one of the most important discoveries so far.

NuSTAR’s principal investigator, Fiona Harrison, noted that the nature of the energetic source was “enigmatic,” but added that the capability to in fact record the event should have provided some clues about the black hole's size and structure, along with (hopefully) some fresh info on how black holes work.

1. Did not come out of the black hole

Was launched from the accretion disk around the hole.

7. For a site that *writes about space science* that headline was shameful. They didn't read source. nt

11. At first I thought this was about some other ridiculous lie Trump had vomited out his pie hole.

But I think you're more on target than I am.

12. Irrespective the poor article title this is really big stuff

didn't think anything could move away from one of those monsters. Just the fact that the force is now seen to fluctuate is news to me. Makes me picture universes within universes.
