Distant supermassive black hole caught feeding and blasting out double cosmic 'burps'

Scientists captured images of burping of the black hole and presented it to the American Astronomical Society. Julie Comerford, a scientist at the University of Colorado Boulder, stated that right now the supermassive black hole is in the sleep phase of the feats-burp-nap cycle and it's just waiting for its next meal.

Scientists have combined images of the J1354 galaxy, which is located 800 million light-years away.

"Fortunately, we happened to observe [J1354] at a time when we could clearly see evidence for both events", Comerford added in the statement. These supermassive black holes are million times heavier than the Sun and scientists consider that these holes are in the centre of every galaxy. This behavior seems to confirm the fast cycle predicted by astronomer theories about black holes.

The terrifying strain mainly affects older people, those with long-term health conditions, pregnant women and children. Influenza-like illness is defined as fever (temperature of 100°F or greater) and cough and/or sore throat.

A paper on the subject was published in a recent issue of The Astrophysical Journal. In fact, we already have well documented instances of such plumes of gas being ejected from black holes, but the duality of this fresh discovery is what makes it special. For comparison, one light-year is roughly six trillion miles. One was Hubble Space Telescope, and another one was Chandra X-ray Observatory. The Apache Point facility is owned by the Astrophysical Research Consortium, a group of 10 US research institutions that includes CU Boulder.

Black holes are incredibly powerful gravity wells that absorb anything and everything that gets too close. In the clearest photo of the event, the beginning of a massive burp is seen shooting out of the upper left of the black hole, while the remnants of an older burp can be spotted still dissipating below it. The material from this stream swirled into the centre of SDSS J1354+1327 and was ultimately eaten up by the supermassive black hole.

With supermassive black holes, the gas that they accrete in space generates a lot of electromagnetic radiation as it becomes increasingly dense and is pulled towards the event horizon. Comerford said that these events of bubbles appear after a black hole feeding process.

Vernon Philander reveals how he planned Virat Kohli, R Ashwin dismissals
Vijay is unlikely to be dropped as the Tamil Nadu batsman has got more experience in South Africa and will hold the key for India. Speaking after the match at Newlands, Kohli said that Rohit was picked over Rahane based on current form.

"This galaxy really caught us off guard", said study co-author Rebecca Nevin. Researchers said that they could see this object having meal, nap and belch and repeating these activities.

Well, nearly nothing. As it turns out, supermassive black holes aren't always thorough when gobbling up star systems and solar debris.
