Science Discovers Pulse Coming from a Black Hole

NASA Saw Something Come Out of a Black Hole for the First Time Ever

Everything we thought we knew about Black Holes may be up for debate.  Two NASA space telescopes observed something unusual from the massive black hole, Markarian 335.  The Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array (NuSTAR) was one of these essential space telescopes.  These telescopes picked up a huge pulse of X-Ray energy escaping from the eye of the black hole.

The Black Hole has been the most feared phenomena of Space.  Once pulled in, nothing can escape the mighty gravitational pull of a Black Hole.  Not even light can escape its might grasp.  That is what we thought before NASA saw the pulse escape.

Scientists are excited about this new finding.  How will this change our understanding of Black Holes?

“This is the first time we have been able to link the launching of the corona to a flare,” Dan Wilkins, of Saint Mary’s University, said. “This will help us understand how super massive black holes power some of the brightest objects in the universe.”
