NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope recently helped astronomers discover quasar tsunamis that cross the galaxy,media reported. They are called “the most active outflow in the history of the universe” and originate in quasars, similar to distant stars. NASA said in a statement that the outflow crossed interstellar space like a tsunami, wreaking havoc on the galaxies in which the quasars are located.
“The quasars contain supermassive black holes that are fueled by the material that falls into the black hole, which is 1,000 times brighter than the galaxy in which it is located, which has hundreds of billions of stars,” NASA said. “
NASA added: “When a black hole devours matter, it is surrounded by heat and emits intense radiation, forming a quasar.” The huge radiation pressure near the black hole drives the wind, pushing matter away from the center of the galaxy. These outflows accelerated to an alarming rate of several percent of the speed of light. “
Astronomers studied the outflow of 13 quasars by looking at spectral “fingerprints” of glowing gases, and measured the rate at which quasars were accelerated by the wind.
“In addition to measuring the most active quasar ever, the team also found another outflow, faster than any other,” the scientists said in a statement. “In three years, it has increased from nearly 43 million miles per hour to about 46 million miles per hour. Scientists believe that over time, its acceleration will continue to increase.
The Hubble telescope continues to bring new Sugon to space exploration. The telescope, for example, recently discovered a “galaxy traffic jam” 60 million light-years from Earth.
The Hubble telescope, a joint project between NASA and the European Space Agency, has captured a wealth of beautiful images since it was launched into space in 1990: in 2012, the Hubble Space Telescope captured a dual-core image of the Andromeda galaxy; The Hubble Space Telescope has captured a double-core image of the spiral galaxy Messier 83.
