Using radio telescopes and infrared telescopes, an worldwide team of astrophysicists was able to observe a star twice as massive as the Sun passing near one of the supermassive black holes with a mass of 20 million solar masses.
When a star gets too close to a black hole's event horizon, it is pulled apart by the extreme gravity and slurped into the hole as a bright flare.
Another scientist, Clive Tadhunter from the University of Sheffield, toldGizmodo that "the association of a jet with a particular type of accretion event - the tidal disruption of a star - could potentially improve our understanding of jet formation in general", regardless of what formed the jet.
It was seen "gobbling a star twice the size of the Sun", saysSky News, and then ejecting a "rapid jet of particles". The superfast jet of charged particles emitted by the black hole packs a staggering 125 billion times the amount of energy the sun releases per year.
There are many galaxies out there that also have supermassive black holes.
One of the tools scientist used to see the jet material that blasted across galaxies was the National Science Foundation's Very Long Baseline Array (VLBA), a radar that amplifies and records the on-goings in space using a 25 meter antenna.
However, the radio and infrared emissions continued to wave outward, like an interstellar greeting, six months later. Subsequent monitoring showed the expansion growing, confirming that what the scientists are seeing is a jet, not a supernova.
"As time passed, the new object stayed bright at infrared and radio wavelengths, but not in visible light and X-rays", said Seppo Mattila, of the University of Turku in Finland in a statement.
One of the effects: a powerful jetstream extending into one direction that was caught by radio and infrared telescopes. The results of the observation were published in the journal Science.
"Never before have we been able to directly observe the formation and evolution of a jet from one of these events", Miguel Perez-Torres, of the Astrophysical Institute of Andalusia, another of the 36 total authors on the paper, said. NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, manages the telescope.
If tariffs are imposed on the full amount in the second list , that would bring the total goods sanctioned to $50 billion. The tariffs were in response to complaints that China requires or pressures foreign companies to hand over technology.
At least one person is dead and 20 injured after a wild shootout at a 24-hour art event in southern New Jersey early Sunday. Darren Zappley told The Trentonian that multiple people were shot and were taken to the hospital.
If the SEC had decided differently, then exchanges and markets would likely have faced some serious regulation . We are pleased with the SEC's decision to provide clarity with respect to current Ether transactions.
Meanwhile, MailOnline's Matt Barlow touted Allegri as a potential successor to Antonio Conte at Chelsea earlier in spring. He was supposed to take charge after Spain's involvement in the World Cup but has now been sacked.
The two players shared a laugh after the weird turn of events and Johnston later said he's never seen anything like it. It's the type of thing you'd see a stroppy youngster perform, frustrated at their putt not going into the hole.
Photos on news websites showed armed police standing in line at the corner of the street hugging Taliban fighters one by one. The Afghan government called for an extension to the ceasefire as it released Taliban prisoners on Saturday.
Kansas City police have fatally shot a woman who barricaded herself in a shed after she was seen outside with a sword. He also is facing charges in the first-degree murder of a 55-year-old woman on December 26, 2017, in Kansas City, Mo.
That difference will be felt most at night when city temperatures remain in the 80s - up to 10 degrees warmer than the suburbs. Summer gets ahead of itself, as a heat wave brews in the D.C. area a few days before spring officially says so long.
As the West Indies players were waiting on the ground, the Sri Lankan team didn't turn up even as both umpires were waiting. It appears that the reason for this was their objection to umpires Ian Gould and Aleem Dar changing the ball .
UPDATE: Porter seems to be working on some trolling and/or damage control, as he posted these pictures later Thursday afternoon. Porter Jr, now 19 years of age, is a 6-foot-10 forward who's drawn loads of attention from most teams around the league.
Eight injured in Moscow after taxi mounts pavement
Russian media are reporting that the fans were made up of Mexican supporters waiting to watch their team play Germany tomorrow. The taxi driver, who has been identified as a national of Kyrgyzstan, is then said to have crashed into a metal pole.
Polish FM welcomes deal to rename Macedonia
Opponents in Macedonia disagreed with any modification to their country's name, seeing it as a threat to their national identity. Bulgaria's prime minister and foreign minister refused to hold meetings with Ivanov because of his opposition to the name deal.
