Astronomers Capture Black Hole dragging space-timeNisha Gowri (Author) Published Date : May 02, 2019 11:55 IST
Another wonder has fallen into the lens of astronomers. Space professionals have captured a black hole which drags space-time. It sucks the jets rapidly into the surrounding universe and this kind is one of its first. V404 Cygni – it is how the black called is giving out powerful beans of plasma at a great speed that it's dragging space-time. This marvel was published in Journal Nature by the Associate Professor James Miller-Jones from Australia's Curtin University node of International Centre for Radio Astronomical Research (ICRAR).
All exclaim this event to be an unseen phenomenon. However, the formation of this black hole is as similar to others. It pulls the gas from the nearby star and forms a disc of material that surrounds the black hole. The distinct feature of V404 Cygni is that the black hole and disk of material do not fall on the same line. This should be the main reason for the fire to spill out in every direction as well as the spinning of the inner part. The fire jets in other black holes are always seen to be in the straight, but with this black hole, it is different.
In this black hole, you can see an accretion disk because of the rotation of the inner part. This process pulls the jet from inside. V404 Cygni is about 10 million km wide. It was picked from the Telescopes of Virgin islands, Hawaii. This telescope was made up of of10 dishes. Many telescopes were used to see this wonderful and mysterious black hole. Radio observations must take a different approach said the Alex Tetaranko who belongs to the University of Alberta. He is working as an East Asian Observatory fellow in Hawaii. Usually, in four hours of observation, we find a single image but here as the jets are moving very fast, was seen was just a blur. So researchers decided to take 101 images and make it as a movie which enabled us to see the process of V404 Cygni in a short period.
