You don’t have to know a whole lot about science to know that black holes normally suck things in, not spew things out. But NASA detected something mighty bizarre at the supermassive black hole Markarian 335. Two of NASA’s space telescopes, including the Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array (NuSTAR), amazingly observed a black hole’s corona “launched” away from the supermassive black hole.
Then an enormous pulse of X-ray energy spewed out. This kind of phenomena has never been observed before.
“This is the first time we have been able to link the launching of the corona to a flare. This will help us comprehend how supermassive black holes power some of the brightest objects in the cosmos.” Dan Wilkins, of Saint Mary’s University, said. This is one of the most important discoveries so far.
NuSTAR’s principal investigator, Fiona Harrison, noted that the nature of the energetic source was “enigmatic,” but added that the capability to in fact record the event should have provided some clues about the black hole’s size and structure, along with (hopefully) some fresh info on how black holes work. Fortunately for us, this black hole is still 324 million light-years away.
So, no matter what bizarre things it was doing, it shouldn’t had any effect on our corner of the cosmos.
While we like to think we have a fairly good understanding of space, much of what we count as knowledge is just theory which has yet to be disproved. So it looks like some textbooks will need to be rewritten. And while this particular supermassive black hole is 324 million light-years away, I’m not taking any chances.
I love the information I have acquired on this Website about the ever changing Universe and the great work NASA is doing to keep the lay public informed. I love the pictures of Mars and Jupiter, the white holes, and Kepler’s discovery of a nearby earth in our own Milky Way. Thank you.
Thats the most brainwashed comment I’ve ever seen…or it’s posted by a NASA employee
I think it just might be someone – normal. With the ability to be astonished. And thankful. And human.
NASA means deception in Yiddish
THE FACT THAT YOU EVEN SAID THAT PROVES YOUR HEAD IS DEVOID OF ALL INTELLIGENCE. YOU KNOW NOTHING ABOUT THE UNIVERSE.
Neither do you.

Definitely worth the time to read!!!
The “FIRST TIME” occurred in 2015!!! This article was ripped from another source that was posted years ago. The actual author is Trent Moore and originally appeared on Syfy.com on November 4, 2015!

Although some things have been added and altered, this is old news, even in 2021, AND, this is plagiarism 100%!
undigested planet like earth has been spewed
