Far too much science for my head, Gortex where are you!!!!!



This is apparently A Relativistic jet being fired across the universe at what was initially thought to be 20 times the speed of light

Because of this rapid motion, the jet in 3C 279 appears to move at about 20 times the speed of light


But alas it was


“This extraordinary optical illusion arises because the material is racing toward us, chasing down the very light it is emitting and making it appear to be moving faster than it is,” clarifies Dom Pesce


There is even a movie, not quite as detailed as a Hollywood interpretation though

Some more reading that is waaaaay above my primitive brain capacity but still interesting to try and learn/grasp
