Astronomers see black hole devour star
Too cool. I'd like to be a spectator on the sidelines.
The sidelines would have to be pretty far from the action though.
That's amazing, everything that happens in space is truly mind boggling.
What I love about astronomy is the way it lets you see into the past (in a manner of speaking), that star was pulled apart 700 million years ago, and we get to see it happen. Too cool.
While you're there, you can say hi to these guys.
Thast true, why during the day we look at the past since the light from the sun atkes like a couple mins to reach us!
Seven minutes. And only the light is that old, not what you see around you.
The image of the liquid crystals of my monitor that I'm looking at are 1.33 x 10^-9 seconds old.
that would be too awesome to see...the next time the little grey buddies of mine show up in their pie dish ship and take me for a ride, I'm gonna have em swing me by an event like that....
I'll send ya'll a postcard =)
"As it approached a supermassive black hole that packs as much mass as 100 million suns, the star was stretched by tidal forces similar to those that raise the oceans on Earth. "
If at this point anyone is "still with the story" youre lieing. Sometimes its fun to sit and ponder the "impossibility" of dimensions.
space is cool. thats all i can say especially since my brain never works in the morning
That would be pretty awesome to see that. Fat black holes just going around eating whatever they please.
if it were safely possible id fart on or in that black hole to show him whos boss
I'm surprised to see they referred to a quasar as another supermassive black hole. They're not black holes at all, but are supermassive "stars" that put out tremendous amounts of energy is cyclic patterns. As far as I know, they don't "feed" either.
Anyone ever think about 700 million years? They was barely life on this planet 700 million years ago, and now we've progressed to the point of being about to observe such a catastropic event. Unless, of course, you're a magic wand therorist, and this all happened no less that 5000 years ago!
(heh. relax, creationists. Its a joke. No reason for religious diatribe here.)
An entire star in a few days, just incredible... damn right that'd be amazing to see.
Ever since I was a little kid I thought that it would make sense for there to be black holes at the centre of spiral galaxies. I'm glad to see the universe behaving so logically.
i just did my homework on this article lol
since were on the topic of space what do u guys think of the creation of the world big bang theory or god created it all?
We've never had THIS discussion on this forum before... :surprise: :scared:
well, i used to believe that a god created it, but as i got older and asked questions about religion, i became to believe more in the big bang and evolution
bah to u and ur sarcasm
edit: i'll start it
someone start up a thread about it im to lazy
