NASA scientists have observed something coming out of a black hole
Farken hell, bugger me sideways if this isn’t one for the nerdlingers out there. It’s got science, it’s got black holes and it’s got NASA. That’s like the holy trinity of nerd sh*t. So strap yourselves in and let’s get scien-f**ken-tific. Ish. Let’s get scien-f**ken-tific-ish.
First of all, in the interests of hyperbole, pure sensationalism and not letting the truth get in the way of a good yarn, how f**ken ominous does that headline sound? Like, it could almost be the start of a Sci-Fi Horror movie. I mean, sure, we’d need the unidentified flying thing to come to earth, infect the innocent and catalyse the kind of body horror that’d fire up your Cronen-boner, but, er, yeah.
Why are some black holes feasting and others starving? Astronomers are finding evidence that magnetic fields may be the key to keeping dust close enough to be gobbled up by supermassive black holes lurking in the heart of most galaxies. Dive in: https://t.co/OFPfeasRHm pic.twitter.com/Tj4FIob500

Anyway, getting back to the truth of the matter, you’re all going to die. Just f**king with ya. Not really. Apparently, this sh*t is significant only because scientists believed – until this happened – that the gravitational pull of a black hole was too strong for even light to escape. Now though, they know they’re wrong – and that’s what makes science so great. They’re not gonna deny that they’re wrong. They’re gonna build on what they know with new evidence. F**ken legends.
How can we know more about the active black hole at the center of a galaxy & how it affects other galaxies? @NASAWebb's sharp vision will be able to see into its bright, active core & measure the motions of stars – one way to confirm a black hole's mass: https://t.co/ZsTLaFIAb9 pic.twitter.com/26y4JeacJF

So…what was this thing? By all accounts, it was a beam of light. NASA, using their Hi-Tech sh*t, the Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array (NuSTAR), saw the beam of light shoot out of a black hole in the Pegasus constellation 324 million light years away.
What that means for Science is that their narrative is changing a little bit. The findings tell us that when coronas – which are highly energetic particles – build up around a black hole, they can f**ken explode away from it in a beam of X-ray light.
There you go. No space monsters and no apocalypse. Just X-ray light shooting out of black holes. Sweet.
Final thought: There you go, nerdlingers. You’ve now got new information to prattle on with when you’re having a deep and meaningful discussion about the power of black holes and the chances of Captain Kirk ever not trying to stick his dick in one.
