This animation shows a supermassive black hole billions of times the mass of the Sun. This particular black hole anchors a type of galaxy called a blazar, which produces two jets of particles moving at nearly the speed of light — one of which points almost directly at Earth.
On September 22, our Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope saw a powerful flare of high-energy light from this blazar. At the same time, the National Science Foundation’s (@nsfgov) IceCube Neutrino Observatory at the South Pole detected a neutrino — a high-energy cosmic particle — from the same direction.
The neutrino was the first we’ve ever detected from a source outside our galactic neighborhood, and this discovery is also the first time we’ve seen light and a neutrino from the same black hole source. Fermi and IceCube’s work represents a new chapter in multimessenger astronomy – viewing the same event using different messengers like light, particles and gravitational waves.

@hlsale film would go black no electrical things can function there. Not much can really


@wolfofdarknes_ I just heard about this! So cool!!


Ohh my god😅


@you_my_love_198720 no . it'll tear them apart


@hlsale when you enter a black whole you will literally get ripped piece by piece until you're atoms . it's a suicide mission if you ask me .


@hlsale they would instantly die


Is this a bad thing


@cademan_boi so are we just going to ignore the statistics? coral bleaching due to rises in ocean temperatures? sea level rise? shrinking ice sheets? the list goes on


@nerdinand our sun actually lacks the mass to become a black hole. our sun will end as a white dwarf

We bout to die yall😩




Maravilhoso & Espetacular❤️💛


@paintingagency prove it if you do not believe it, why not


@smilinx Cute. You have your rights but good luck with that, mate.


@jah_70 also, misogyny


@jah_70 you did not reply to the last comment I made before this one.


if it had been pointed at earth, kiss everything you love goodbye


@paintingagency Islam is a perfect religion and Islam regulates all matters of human life all written in the Qur'an. it has been proven that non-Muslims then convert to Islam because of science and because of the truth contained in the Qur'an


@ilo.ign ok 1, I didn't ignore u.... 2, u sound like a female getting mad at her man because he ignored her 😂😂😂😂 dead 2 the comment... I replied directly to u
