Astronomers Surprisingly Find One of the Largest Black Hole Jets Ever in the Sky #Astronomers #Surprisingly #Find #Largest #Black #Hole #Jets #Sky Welcome to Viasildes, here is the new story we have for you today:
NASA’s IXPE mission includes an X-ray telescope that will help us learn more about black holes, but astronomers at Western Sydney University didn’t need that tool to find one of the largest black hole jets ever in the sky. Located 93 million light-years from Earth in the galaxy NGC2663, CSIRO’s Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder (ASKAP), a network of 36 linked radio dishes forming a super telescope, observed a stream of material that is 50-times larger than the Milky Way galaxy.
Upon closer inspection, they discovered a phenomena that resembles shock diamonds generated by a jet engine. The shock diamonds you see in NGC2663 means that there is enough matter around the galaxy to push against the sides of the jet. In other words, intergalactic matter is fed into a galaxy, which then makes a black hole and launches a jet. This black hole jet slows the supply of intergalactic matter into galaxies and affects how gas forms into galaxies as the universe evolves.

Its quality is unmatched in its class and against competitors.Powerful eyepieces for up-close viewing: Our telescope for astronomy beginners is equipped with two high-quality eyepieces (20mm and 10mm) that provide low- and high-power views of celestial objects at night and terrestrial objects during the day.Large 70mm objective lens: Our refractor telescope is equipped with a large 70mm aperture objective lens that provides enhanced, brighter views compared to the 50mm model while adding very little additional weight. Setting up and using the Travel Scope is quick and easy.Bonus bag, tripod, and software: This Celestron telescope and full-height tripod can be taken anywhere in the included travel backpack. Accessories also include a FREE download of one of the top consumer rated astronomy software programs.Unbeatable warranty and customer support: Buy with confidence from the telescope brand, based in California since 1960. You’ll also receive a 2-year warranty and unlimited access to technical support from our team of US-based experts.
One possibility is that the physics of the jet is not determined by the size of the disc, but instead by the speed, temperature and other properties of particles at the jet’s base,” said Poshak Gandhi, lead author of the study and astronomer at the University of Southampton, United Kingdom.
