For The First Time, NASA Saw Something Mysterious Coming Out Of Black Hole

What happens in a black hole, stays in a black hole. But for the first time National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) manages to bring some of the mysterious facts out of the Black Hole.

The sky is the ultimate art gallery just above us but mysterious too. Earlier people used to believe that the world was flat. Not everything you accept is a fact actually, right?

Science is more than a body of knowledge; it's a way of thinking; a way of skeptically interrogating the universe. But you don't have to know a whole lot about science to know the baffling and strange behaviors of black holes because it has no ends like Lord, the point where reason breaks down, the point where everything gets divided by zero. Zero? I'm saying. But NASA just challenged the Lord and captured a supermassive black hole's flare which is 324 million light-years far from the Earth named as 'Markarian 335.'

Two of NASA's space telescopes including NASA's Explorer missions Swift and the Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array, or NuSTAR, observed a supermassive black hole corona in the midst of a giant eruption of X-ray light. Then a massive pulse of X-ray energy ejected out. So, what exactly happened? How do supermassive black holes blaze? What are the reasons behind it? A new puzzle arises among the astronomers. Think, Think and Think again?

"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 supermassive black holes power some of the brightest objects in the universe."

They are surrounded by disks of hot, bright material. Supermassive black holes don't give off any light themselves.

What is a Black Hole?

What is a Black Hole?

A black hole is a place in space where gravity pulls so much that even light can not get out.

NASA just saw something come out of a black hole for the first time.

This diagram shows how a shifting feature, called a corona, can create a flare of X-rays around a black hole.

The largest and most influential Black Hole ever discovered.

You can't directly see a black hole.

Because a black hole is indeed "black" -no light can escape from it - it's impossible for us to sense the hole directly through our instruments.

Supermassive black hole eats star, beams a signal to Earth.
