It could be the central black hole, but burping usually doesn't happen at these exact regualr clock intervals as the external feedstock tends to com
in various quantities and intervals and tend to be associated with gamma ray bursts as well...
Neutronstars do have that regualr interval but not that power output. Magnetars have that power but have more irregular "earthquake" outbursts due
to tension building and suddenly collapsing fieldllines.
Personally, I put my 2 cents on the really enormous magnetic field around the central black hole of our milkyway, possibly generating inductiion
currents in the magnetic fields of nearby stars, just like happens to the moon IO floating in Jupiters magnetosphere, this process, known as the IO
fluxtube has been a huge source of strong radiosignals as well. I could imagine that the numbers of 10 and 77 minutes could tell us something about
the possible rotational speed and the axial precession of the black hole, together with gravitational and density estimates of the center one could
get an idea what huge monster we might be dealing.
Since the IO fluxtube has a power output of 3 Trillion watt and constantly puts 1 million ampere through this moon, we see why IO has so much
vulcanism , its being toasted on the electric chair....Likewise an interesting implication could be that stars in relative close orbitti of a huge
black hole will
get inducted a lot of current, producing extra heat and have this star mature faster and die faster, or even prolong the life of a white dwarf ,
allowing fusions to happen eventhough the self-generated pressure/heat of the white dwarf would no longer support it.
